Well, THAT was gross.
I keep hearing about Pu’erh tea and feel like I should give it a shot, so I tried this one. It was, as expected, pretty darn gross. People had warned me that Pu’erh can smell very fishy and this one wasn’t VERY fishy, but it definitely had some of that vibe. People say it’s “earthy”, I think it smells like a gross fish market.
It’s funny as Numi’s Chocolate Pu’erh is so mild that it’s basically like a Rooibos and it is definitely good and doesn’t have this gross smell. I gotta try some other Pu’erh’s to be safe, but so far the traditional ones are pretty gross. The taste actually was mostly ok, but the smell was pretty bad and that didn’t sell really work out well for me.
