Review :

First of all the tea has a very unique taste (in a good way)

Road to Lincang has a great body and is amazingly smooth for its young age.

It is not astringent by any means.

(Except for the one time I pushed him too hard ^^ about 3 minutes)

Overall I’ve been very impressed by this little binge and will definitely rebuy the cake. Its a ready to drink young sheng Pu’er for me. Suitable for daily drinking.

Rank:
