Rough and tough, this sample, that came to me by Royal Mail. Thanks Roughage! It has character written all over. First time I smelled it, it made me think of that hospital odor, in my home town, long time ago, definitely, not the way to go nowadays. Second tasting was way better and I started to appreciate this robust, no nonsense Pu-erh. I can even understand, you drink it with salted yak butter, the tastes are strong enough to cope with it. Conclusion….not sure, some reminiscing will do…now, it’s time to go back to my Tibetan mushroom.
