Don’t stick your nose straight into a new bag. The amines/amides had really built up from the pu-erh and the initial whiff was strongly fishy. After letting the package breathe, it had a mellow, creamy, nutty cocoa fragrance.

The tea brewed to a bright rust. I’ve only tried a few flavored pu-erh teas and they were disappointing but this is pretty good. The cocoa and coconut are discernable but they don’t overtake the subtle flavors of the earthy pu-erh.

[From some other notes, it appears this blend is no longer available? I’ve had this for a little while and just discovered I hadn’t posted a tasting note for it when I was cleaning out the tea bins.]
