Gah. It’s so hard to give a bad review, but I feel like it’s only right to be honest. I’m not going to add a rating for this one because I’m not sure Puers are for me at all. This was so, so strong. I found the flavour absolutely undrinkable. I tried to wash the tea several times, tried a few temperatures, but the taste was just..horrid.
It was, how do I quantify this..it smelled and tasted like I was drinking fermenting tree bark after a forest fire. I couldn’t find any sweetness and the flavour of the chrysanthemum was not detectable at all. I don’t know, this may be the worst tea I’ve ever tried. I tried giving some to a Puer-drinking coworker but it was too strong for him too, so don’t get this if you’re faint of heart!
