Let me start by saying – I was terrified to try this tea. I haven’t truly had Pu-erh before (just a blend that contained a tiny bit of it). The smell dry was pretty good. Once I started steeping the smell was scaring me a little. Luckily, my fears were unfounded. The taste is hard to describe. It is lemony and slightly earthy, with the faintest hint of an almost pine-like taste. The texture is a bit thick and syrupy, which I like. I’m not totally sure what I think of this one yet, but I’m pretty sure I like it. Prepared with stevia.
