I received this but have not gotten around to trying it yet. Have you?

I am also wondering about them.

i also got this little tuo from scott, and so far, i like it,
scott said that this is a nice everyday tea to drink,
and i drink it in the office with other office staff or during meetings,

i really dont know how to describe the flavor but i could say that it has a nice aftertaste and the aroma is nice, there is an initial taste of "mist" but i think its the case for all ripe pu...

I broke up one 100g tuo out of the tong last night, planning to try it today. But Igot too curious and brewed some last night. Resulting in a mild but unpleasant stomach ache that came and went until the last hour or so. Can't be sure it was the shu, but some Pu has given me a lesser, briefer stomach twinge in the past. Perhaps it needs to hide in a Pu cave for a couple of years. If I get very brave, I'll try it again. Later. Much later. Maybe.

Anyone else?

I got some Xiaguan mini tuos (3 gr each) from Puerhshop as part of an order today. I thought the box was worth looking at. It's in English! Haven't tasted them yet, but will report after trying one.

Okay, my stomach has been a little off this afternoon, too. Not a frequent occurance, but now think the shu probably had not much if anything to do with it. So I'll try it again when my system returns to normal.
