That sounds so gross. I think I have this somewhere. I will have to compare notes at some point.

I just don’t get this one. It’s really awful. I’ve read some reviews and people say it’s sweet?! I seriously didn’t taste anything different than the mud I ate as a child. ;) Maybe my sample was bad… I’d be happy to send you, or any other brave soul, the remainder of the sample. Enough for a cup! Any takers?

So that means “earthy” notes? :)

I love honest reviews! I cross-referenced my tasting notes and I had given this one an 86; one of my highest scores ever. It goes to show how varied our tastes are even in this one community.

twing – It very well could have been earth.

Paul – I know. When I looked up the reviews, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, which leads me to believe that maybe my sample went bad. Or, maybe I’m just not a pu erh person after all. So, are you brave enough to try the rest of my sample? (Just for research purposes, of course?)

I am going to try to find mine tomorrow and see what happens. Should be fun.

Bio

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
