I’m going to be one of the very few people to say this, but I don’t care for this tea at all. I find it to be… strange. The first steep, I didn’t know that you were suppose to rinse the leaves. I almost never drink pu’erhs and I didn’t see the rinsing thing anywhere on the packaging or on the website. But now that I’ve looked around a bit online, I see that, and I gotta say… that’s kinda weird.. haha
Anyway, so I tossed my first steep after I saw that, and resteeped it for a few minutes. The second steep is definitely better, but I still don’t really care for it at all. I think the earthy-ness is too much for me, and I definitely get the fishiness that someone else was talking about. I get that smell pretty good.
This came in a sample pack that I got as a gift, so I only have a little. I don’t think I’ll be keeping what little I have left. It’s too bad, ‘cause so many people rave about it. I think it’s just my personal tastes. I’m not for the more earthy smelling/tasting teas…
Sorry Oh Christmas Treat… I just can’t do it… :(
