2007 Chang Shou

From J-Tea $220.00 for 357g cake

This is definitely one of the best puerhs I have had, if not the best.  It leaves me eager to try more from the world of raw puerhs, which I have only tried roughly 20 up to this point.  The majority of tea that I have explored at this point has been ripe puerh but this is a beautiful raw cake.  The liquor is a very nice green with a touch of brown with many great subtle flavors that come from the lovely unbroken leaves.  The aromas are complex and yet still retain mild qualities that are not overpowering.  The only drawback is that it is a bit expensive making it not the easiest thing to buy a few cakes to drink now and store for the future, which this puerh is sure to only become better with time.
