I wanted to try an older pu-erh, taste and smell the difference, so I gave this one a try.

It has a strong earthy smell and the description of leaving a pleasant mineral sensation is absolutely correct. It’s quite comforting. However, I thought that the taste was slightly thin, or I should say, thinner than I expected. Overall, it’s an enjoyable experience, and I would still recommend it.

Ratings:
96 – 100: If I would be stuck drinking the same tea for the rest of my life, this would be it!
81 – 95: Highly recommended! Among the best I’ve ever tasted!
61 – 80: Recommended. Not the best in its kind, but definitely worth a try.
41 – 60: Neutral. Not bad, but I probably won’t buy anymore.
21 – 40: I get that this is tea, but I don’t like it and wouldn’t recommend it.
01 – 20: Foul drink. Quick! Something else to wash down that awful taste.
