Pu-erh in the picture is 2001 Zhong Hua Yi Wu by Jing Ye Hao, a sample from Houde. It's on the thin side even I used more leaves than usual, about 5g. Color is light amber and clear, taste is smoked wood/veggie, not the actually smoke smell or taste, but like smoked duck but not cigarette smoke, if that was a good analogy. An indescribable flavor, perhaps a cooked prune in syrup taste? A little bit of sweet after taste, medium round mouth feel. It's a decent tea. I can't say I like it as much as others I had, but maybe it'll age better, and I think it has a good chance.
My never ending obsession of obtaining teapots. Pear shaped teapots are my favorites for now. A new member to the pear family, and the larger pot is up side down handle dinosaur egg.
