My puer loving friend was finally able to come over this evening to try this with me. This puer has an earthy aroma, not the fishy smell some puers have. I gave it almost two minutes on the first steep. It was not terribly strong, so if you like it strong right off the bat, you may want to wash it, then steep. give it the full two minutes at least.I thought it was great! The second steep was even darker and still had great flavor, not diminished at all. This was a lovely puer. I will most likely give it one more steep. Thank you, Angel!
