    The warm comfort of a fresh batch of cookies. There also is a very noticable Chinese medicine aroma which I do enjoy. The compression is fair and the leaves are small so it crumbles really nicely under my puer pick. Incredible value!

    Something really homey and comforting about this one. Smooth on the tongue, though it bites a little in the throat, but leaves that fantastic lingering freshness in the mouth. I ended up repurchasing this one. Great for winter.

    Delicious! Sugary aroma of hot cookies is so strong and I also noticed the Chinese medicine/ herbal aroma. The palette is very clean and refreshing. The leaves are easy to break and infuse quick and thick. Recommended.

    I hate myself for getting only one cake. It is incredible, wow. Chocolate, spice, woody. So delicious and satisfying. One of my top 5 favorite ripe puerhs.
