There’s not much I could add to the 83 descriptions of this Pu-erh that precede my entry other than to say:
Yes, it is a balanced and slightly-on-the-sweet-side Pu-erh.
I’m on the 7th personal-sized steeping of the sample that came in my purchase of the Samovar Pu-erh sampler and it’s still a delicious brew.
If you’re sitting on the fence about whether Pu-erh is for you, this is one to try. If you find it to be “too” something or other, you’re probably not inclined to enjoy other varieties of Pu-erh.
In the descriptions I’ve seen in Samovar’s videos – this is named Maiden’s Ecstasy because it’s reminiscent of tea traditionally given in a bride’s dowry. I now understand why a Pu-erh with this flavor profile would be so prized.
I’ll be purchasing more of this when my sample leaves are exhausted.
