Nada do you know if that youle maocha was pressed into any beengs, or was it just sold as is in the bamboo? It's really good tea, especially for the price. It's a very strong (in a good way) smelling pu'er. I wish it were pressed into some beengs instead of buying a bunch of bamboo wrapped maocha bundles, but either way I'd love to have more.
