    I ordered the shou version.

    I don’t remember having anything like this. Slight acidity comes through in the lighter steeps, later complemented by a nice, round, earthy/woody/minty aroma. Mixed with this acidity, and a great thick texture, I’m getting strong dark chocolate feel.

    Definitely didn’t last as long as I would’ve thought, by shou puer standards – I think it was starting to die out after the 5th or 6th steep – but every steep had its personality, and was enjoyable.
