I gave this mini to a patient of mine and she remarked that she felt she was on a mild narcotic all day. The cha-qi of this mini is decent. I’d give it about a 7 and a scale to 10. Can’t taste one lick of chrysanthemum in the brew, but might be there to enhance some of the liver treating properties of the tea itself.

This mini is another tea where it doesn’t much matter how long you steep it. The flavors don’t change much from one cup to the next traditional style. Therefore, it makes a good gift or “gateway” introduction to pu-er just based on the mellow taste that is both up-lifting while simultaneously grounding. Great for work too.

On the liver note, also, I should mention that I’ve had more than one patient report to me that certain complaints they were experiencing seemed to resolve after taking a course of these little gems. It’s not all about the taste, but also what it does for the body that makes these things so great.

Had this once or twice and loved it. It was the first puerh I actually did like. I remember it being mellower and having little floaty things on top of the water while I was infusing it. I thought they were petals and later confirmed it was this chrysanthemum variety of tuo cha. Recommend for newbies to puerh or people who think they don’t like the earthy, fishy sawdust flavour… this didn’t have that.
