These discs of cooked/ripened puer, grown on the slopes of Nannuo Mountain, produce an infusion that ranges in color from inky black to deep red, with a full flavor that lasts for many brews.  This tea leads with a pronounced yun petrichor sweetness, reminiscent of a cave and the smell before rain.  It is slightly astringent, and carries an earthy aroma, with elements of grass and wood, and leaves a lingering sweetness on the tongue and palate (huitian).  

Nomenclature: The Chinese name for this particular puer is 醇香 - Chún Xiāng

 醇 - Chún - Pure.  This character consists of a brewing vessel on the left, combined with the character for "enjoyment" on the right, which happens to be half of the Chinese word for "share."  

香 - Xiāng - Fragrant, aromatic, or incense.  This character originally derives from the character for grain (on top) combined with the modified character for sugarcane, or sweet (on the bottom).  While sweet grain may be the implication of this, this character is used to refer to all sorts of pleasant aromas, from savory to minty to floral.  In this case, the aroma is decidedly savory in nature.  

Lasts about a dozen brews.  

Price is per 50 grams (1.76 ounces)
