First time

I had never heard of Pu-erh prior to buying it so I had no idea what to expect. It was a wonderful, full bodied tea. Retaining it's flavor through multiple infusions. It was smooth, with no bitterness or vegetal taste. I think it would also make a wonderful iced tea and look forward to giving that a go over the summer.

Pu-Erh for people who don't like Pu-Erh

The taste of this pu-erh is so mellow compared to other pu-erhs I have tried. Most of them are very earthy, very musty, and just not my cup of tea (pun intended). I tried this one, and I have to say that it must be something with the long aging process, cuz this doesn't taste anything like the pu-erhs I have tried.
