This is a really nice everyday puerh to get going in the morning. Nothing special about it, but its a solid ripe pu that is very approachable. I would get more to have in the morning rotation of pu if I run into it again.


  1. Seems to be a recent trend to make bricks more easy to break up with the chocolate pattern.

    Does it work in practice without a pu knife?

  2. Yeah, as long as the product is good, shape and form don't matter to much to me. A knife is definitely not warranted, there is a stack of three bars in a box that is about 5 cm tall.
