Just made my FIRST Pu-ehr purchase! :)

Hey guys, just thought I'd make a post to say I made my first pu-ehr purchase from Yunnan Sourcing since I've heard so many good things about them!

I purchased a 400 gram cake of: 2011 Yunnan Sourcing "Cha Qi" Raw Pu-erh Tea cake *

And I also bought a 25 gram sample of: 2012 Yunnan Sourcing "Yi Wu Purple Tea" Raw Pu-erh tea cake *

All for $42.55!

I purchased the "Cha Qi" cake because of the review of the cake Yunnan Sourcing did in the description of the cake underneath, and I purchased the Yi Wu purple sample because I had a few dollars left to spare!

I was going to purchase all samples but it was the same price for about 250 grams of samples when I got 425 grams for a cake and a sample for the same price. :)

Good purchase! :D

While tastes are different, I received a free sample of the "Cha Qi" tea and really like it.

It has the smokey taste of a shu / aged sheng, which combines nicely with the usual floral sheng taste, is not too bitter and has a nice upbeat cha qi indeed.
