16 Year Old Wild Pu-erh Tea

This is a loose pu-erh tea.  The dry leaves have a nice appearance with the typical smell of hay,  leather and maybe a little wood.  After a rinse, the tea infuses quickly to a beautiful, clear, dark amber.  The leather smell is a bit more enhanced in the infused tea.  The mouthfeel is full and very pleasing.  Due to the lack of any ripe fruit notes, I would guess that this is an aged raw pu-erh vice a ripe pu-erh.  There is no astringency in this tea since it is 16 years old.
I think that this is another tea that is destined for my inventory at the store.
