I might as well do this Leeroy Jenkins style and try it out since I’ve had it since the summer. I’m not going into a fancy schmancy 20+, or even 8+ steep fest here because quite frankly, I’m not a fan of pu-erhs, and I anticipate crying in my sauerkraut after the fifth steep.

First steep: Ultra smoky and meaty. Like smoked meat. Barely any sweetness or anything. I can feel the shreds of charred steak between my teeth. I haven’t had a steak in over fifteen years, so this isn’t a pleasant steep for me.

Second steep: Not as smokey but still meaty. Touch of sweetness.

Third steep: Meaty with some vegetal note creeping in. Smoke in the background. These first three steeps all smell the same, though.

Fourth steep: A bit smokey but less meaty. The vegetal note is somehow softer than before. Beef jerky.

Fifth steep: A bit more vegetal with the smoke + meatiness. This is a little more balanced than the previous steeps. Even though I can see that this is getting better for my own personal tastes, I’m stopping here.

Interesting experience but this has reminded me that I’m not a fan of pu-erh. And that I don’t miss steak.

Reading reviews is supposed to make me thirsty. I’m now hungry and I don’t even like smoked meat.

I’m scarred for life. Might as well stick a steak in a juicer.

OMGsrsly

LOL! This one was way to smokey/leathery for me. My brother likes it, but there’s no accounting for his tastes. :D

If you encounter a puerh that’s a bit too smoky or leathery, add a little sugar and cream. It’s amazing how puerh can transform into caramel or cake with a soft nudge.

I’ve done that before and I still got smoked meat underneath. But no loss!
