This tea is well made by the prominent local pu'erh tea producer Song Ping Hao mark, one of the oldest pu'erh tea firms, established during the Qing dynasty. It is a well-blended tea, after six years of aging, it tastes mellow and smooth, has sweet aftertaste. Very refreshing. The first several steepings have a very slight hint of smokiness which was the trace of how the puerh tea processed in the older days.
