One the first things I thought of this tea when I opened it was that it smelled like mushrooms. That scent comes across more in the brew. The flavour reminds me a bit of mushroom soup. Certainly very earthy.

i love mushroom soup. i dont think you liked the tea. Right? Did you rinse it first?

I did rinse first, but I wasn’t that flavour to be so prominent. Not that I mind mushrooms. It’s not that I didn’t like it, more it wasn’t what I wanted at the moment. Might end up using it as a rice flavouring.

that never occur to me. Good idea!

It’s one of the most savory pu-erhs I’ve had. Nothing wrong with that really, but I’d like it more if it were soup.
