Description Brewing Guide

Highly compressed by machine "metal mold". Strong espresso-like character. Rich and full bodied with good "Hui Gan". Deep and complex taste. This tea has very good aged plummy flavor and camphor flavor and lingering after taste. One of the our most favorite age pu-erh tea in the shop.

5 of 5 I tasted earth as well as sweet, fruity sensations August 20, 2013
Reviewer: Aaron Basskin from NC  
Its becoming apparent that the more I drink Daniel's tea, the more I learn what exquisite tea is supposed to taste like. The 1990's "Iron Mold" Pu-Erh is no exception. I realize now that the age factor for tea plays an incredibly crucial role in how the flavor and essence exists in relation or even opposition to the initial taste. One could not drink this Pu-Erh without taking notice of how the flavors change in the mouth and throat--five, ten minutes after one glorious sip!

I have had many mid-grade Pu-Erh's that can be described as "earthy" or "muddy," however not until enjoying the 1990's "Iron Mold" have I tasted both notes of earth as well as sweet, fruity sensations in the same spiritually uplifting moment! The initial flavors of the tea present me with a sort of poetic image of "muddy rain" and a deep sweetness. Upon swallowing my mouth, tongue and throat were enveloped by notes of mango, blueberry and plum. This was nicely accompanied by hints of cinnamon, caramel, and vanilla, all which lended themselves to making this tea so surprisingly sweet! The color of this fine Pu-Erh ranged from mahogany to a deep, powerful blood-orange. Thinking back now, I'm amazed how greatly this tea made me feel so connected with nature through its flavors; as if I were a fresh seed in the soil and damp earth and grew until I were a ripe fruit. How amazing!

3 of 5 a great cake to store December 4, 2011
Reviewer: David Jewell from Waverly, NY United States  
I am always looking for pu-erh of this sort.  right in the in between stage of becoming mature As they are almost mature yet donot cary the mature price tag yet I think this tea will develop into something nice given a few more years. While drinking it you get hints of the tea this will become am of its youth. I  am giving this tea three stars only because of its slight akwardness at the moment yet I feel this tea has the potentcy to be quite nice once it settles into maturity.
