If I am not mistaken, it is readily available here in Singapore. There are many versions. Some raw, some ripe, some big pieces in exquisite boxes, etc.. Not exactly expensive. the one in the red wrapper is very nice.

Now, there is also another batch that may be from another factory where the pictures are in color.

I will go check out the prices if any one is interested.

Just a few. Our neighbouring country Malaysia has lots more. Interesting, I get quite a lot from YSLLC. :)

I'm ordering a sample of it. I will let you know how it is when it arrives, which might be a few days.

I just drank the first cup of it. Its very good, I'm near certain it will be extremely good in a couple of years.

It has the taste of spice, with a hint of honey... it almost reminds me of the taste of mead.

The downside is that it does seem to be losing quite a bit of flavor with each additional infusion, faster than most pu erh.

as fare as the strength i think as it gets older an increase in leaf might help that

i am new so the age / storage thing is still up in the air and i will now more of my methods as time goes on.

its a good tea for the money and i hope it stays that way. :P :lol:

May have to sample some of this. I was reluctant to try it previously base on the name alone. Just did not seem right...
