I felt this tea was pretty astringent (read: BITTER) and VERY grassy, both in taste and in the nose.

The color is not murky…much.

I found that using a cooler water made it halfway palatable.

This tea is not one I reach for very often. Bana Tea Co. was nice enough to send me a complimentary small sample of a ripe puerh. I liked that.

I am into puerh teas: raw & cooked, aged or ripened. A good friend of mine sent me a sample of a puerh tea and I fell in love. Before that time, I really only drank black teas, and those were iced! Obviously I was tea challenged.

Puerh teas are very unique, I’ve found. I have even had different tastes come from the same beeng cha! Mostly my collection is ripe (cooked) puerh from Yunnan region only. I intend to branch out my tasting horizons into raw puerhs, and if I can afford them, some aged raw puerhs. (the really good ones tend to be pricey, like over $50 for a tea cake pricey)

I do enjoy a good oolong or cuppa black tea, but mostly my enjoyment and passion is for puerh teas.
