It's all about

slowly changing flavors and deep dank aromas. My experience with humid-stored sheng puer is shallow, but this tea reminds me of that more than any other tea type. There’s an upfront bitterness, followed by a meaty umami, finally ending in a soft vegetal sweetness. As for aromas, there’s no high notes but rather some real deep earthy funk.
