Granted I dont have the best water there, but I also tried at home and I thought it wasnt unpleasant, but lacked anything special. IMHO I would not buy a cake of this.
Ill give the sample one more try tomorrow though.
Thanks for the info
This tea is more often suggested as a good tea for beginners than as a great tea for experienced puerh drinkers. I think that is how it got its start in TeaChat: BBB included it in a list of pu that might be good for beginners, was available in sample size, and that didn't require ordering from China.Jeremy wrote: What is remarkable is there is no bitterness whatsoever

That being said, I retried it this morning and I agree with the comments. It is a very light tea. What is remarkable is there is no bitterness whatsoever, I used at least 6+ grams of tea in a 150ML pot. Not until I started doing 30s + steeps did it get a little bitter.
Yes, it is also very well balanced. My own taste is for a tea that has a little more kick.
Thanks, and sorry if I came off too opinionated.
