I really wish I had a palate that would allow me to truly describe this tea, but I do not. Yes I know this pu’er is “composed of low grade tea leaves and stems”, but still, this tea is everything I love about pu’er. It is extremely bold and the taste is so amazing that, again, I really wish I could describe it. All I can really say is the taste is more leafy then it is earthy. This will sound weird, but the best way I can describe it is this: every time I sip this tea I imagine how a forest floor would taste in late fall after all the trees have shed their leaves. Goofy, but that is how I can best describe it! I really love this tea!!!

I have been a tea drinker almost all of my life. In 2008 I was able to accompany my wife to a conference she had in Shanghai. At one of the dinners I was introduced to the Nectar of the Gods – Pu’er and I have been hooked ever since.
