I didn’t notice the same earthiness from this puerh that my SororiTea Sister TeaEqualsBliss did.
This was a surprising Puerh, because I could taste unique sweet and fruity notes! A mild earthy note, but I found that the leaf smelled more earthy than the tea tasted.
Sweet, juicy melon and peach notes with a hint of vanilla. Then I noticed hints of wood. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a Puerh quite like this one before: no strong earthy qualities, no fishy or brine-y notes. Just … really delightful.
