I haven’t had pu’erh in a while, even though I adore it. So I decided to crack this open to start the day.
The dry leaf smells of worn leather and sweet tobacco. The taste is smooth and mellow – a hint of damp earth. While I don’t find this complex, I do find it enjoyable and easy to sip.
I’m on my third steep (western style) and I can see that I’ll get a few more steeps out of it.
Thank you Dexter for sharing this sample with me!
