I’ve had this sitting in my tea pantry for over 8 months and finally decided to try it today.
As a loose tea this smells like a creamy, orange-y black tea with a tiny bit of ginger spiciness but it brews up very mellow and you don’t taste the pu’erh too much (which is a good thing since I’m not particularly fond of pu’erh). I can’t really describe the flavour since it’s not too distinct but I don’t find it as citrusy as other reviewers have commented. I let this steep for a good 7 minutes to get the full flavour and beautiful colour out and it can easily been steeped a second time. I like this after a heavy, greasy meal – I feel like it helps rinse some of the grease out of my system.
