I received a sample of this tea from the ever generous SimplyJenW. Thank you!
I shared this today with my puer-loving friend. She is not a fan of tropical fruit punches, citrus flavors, etc. so she didn’t care for it. She likes a good, strong, unflavored puer.
I enjoy plain puer also, but I liked the flavor of this. I found it very orange-y especially. At first I thought I didn’t taste puer at all, but after giving it a good swish the heady, earthy taste rose up.I agree with Jen. This is puer with training wheels. If you don’t like puer but want the benefits of it, you could drink this. If you love puer and want strong, earthy flavor every time, this probably isn’t the best tea for you. It is very well done and requires no additions. I think even people who normally add sugar and/or milk to their tea would love this plain.
I like it very much as a flavored tea, though it probably won’t satisfy the cravings of a hard core puer lover.
Thank you, Jen!
