This was the brick that had that odd numbing effect on me.

I liked it- but don't have any other young sheng to compare it to (yet).

Excerpts from my notes:
  • Light and pleasant yiwu flavor, some viscosity.
    sweet, a bit viscous, and quite smooth for such a young puerh.
    There's a bit of an aftertaste that is nice and the overall flavor profile is probably mushroomy.
At this price I doubt the leaves are authentic Yiwu, but this one really strikes me as a great bargain, and the box it comes in is cool too! I address HERE the issue of the numbness that Omegapd felt.
