After reading all of the tasting notes and seeing that there is a some who love and some who don’t care for it. I love it. I brewed in the yixing for maybe a minute and poured a touch out to smell and see the color. It was ready. The aroma is intoxicating and the flavor is a knockout. I too must admit was put off by some of the reviews. I am getting the corn obviously but with a much more complex profile. It is a lighter Shu that’s for sure. Totally unique. I will say it again, I love it….

I agree. This is one of the most interesting and unique Pu-erh teas I’ve tasted in a long time. I really like it.

sometimes other people’s reviews can really cloud my judgment but we are all different and like different things.

I’m a fan of this one too. Some of the other reviews of this perplex me. Like that recent one… I just can’t comprehend how this tea could be likened to glue stick. Glue stick? Really!? But then again, I have to admit that I’ve never tasted glue stick; if it tastes anything like Diyi Cornfields, maybe I’m missing out ;P

Charles Thomas Draper

It is a fantastick tea for an incredible price….

David Duckler

Aww, thanks my friends. I get a kick out of this tea every time, and know that it isn’t for everybody, but find it too unique and interesting to pass up. Plus, most “scented” pu’ers are quite murky. Finding something so novel that had such a clean body seemed too good to pass on. Some days I consider changing the name, or putting a little red warning sticker on the bag “Tastes like corn!” so that it doesn’t take people by surprise.

A few days ago I had a similar experience of shock when I opened a sample bag of pu’er tuocha expecting a traditional tea, and getting a big whiff of jasmine. The pu’er was jasmine scented! It was the most bizarre thing. It didn’t seem to make any sense, and I put it in the “NO” pile after 4 steepings, but perhaps I should try it again knowing what I am getting into.
