This is nothing like the Yunnan Golden, but it’s still very much a pu-erh! The strawberry goodness is really enchanting, and the smooth vanilla finish is absolutely tantalizing. Now, pu-erh is extremely earthy, but the strawberry gives it a nice but not so harsh fruity taste. At first I thought I would be overwhelmed by the flavor, but not so much after I tasted it for the first time. The strawberry flavor becomes softer and softer more and more each time I re-infuse it. Also, the vanilla flavor is very subtle, I want more. Not my favorite pu-erh, though.

Now keep in mind y’all this tea is AWESOME as far as speeding up your metabolism goes! The Chinese used pu-erh teas as an aid for weight loss for maaaany, many, many, years. Bear in mind though this isn’t supposed to replace a meal, though. Be cautious, of course. But anyway this tea is IDEAL for after meals. I would recommend this pu-erh if the Yunnan Gold pu-erh is too earthy for you…
(increase the steep time by 15 seconds each time you re-steep it, until you’re up to 3:00 for the last infusion).
