The description for this tea sounded incredibly enticing, so I could not resist. The people at Verdant are by far the best company at writing tea descriptions that make you swoon. I was surprised by just how strong the aromas of cinnamon and vanilla cream were in the tea as it brewed. I didn’t have to try hard to find these flavors, they really stuck out clearly. The earthiness of this tea is there, but it is very light and smooth and as I sip I get faint flavors of cinnamon and malt, and there is a tingling sensation on the finish. This is a very clean, smooth and delicious pu-erh. I’m so glad I was brave enough to try pu-erh so early on in my tea adventure, because I now know that it’s going to be a life-long love.

The earlier you fall in love, the earlier you get to start your stash!

What a nice intro to pu’er. My first one was an itty bitty square I picked up on a whim in NY Chinatown.. it tasted rotten (literally) and I stayed away from all pu’er for a year, wondering if that was a taste I really wanted to acquire. :-p (luckily, I didn’t have to! just hurried on into nicer pu’er)
