the second of my morning pu-erh & my second tealux tea.
the dry leaves were almost fruity, & not quite delicious smelling.
ugh once steeped that really revolting smell appears that I have associated with pu-erh. it’s that smell that lends to that fishy tastes. oh oh
so I sucked it up, stopped breathing through my nose & sipped. I do get a hint of caramel, man I wish there was more of that, followed by the nasty smell converted to taste & a whole lot of chai.
I’ll finish the sample pouch of this, but I won’t buy more. so much potential. needs more caramel & less of that nasty taste, although I don’t know how it’s unavoidable.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

I had some of this the other day, granted I am suffering from a head cold and my taster may be off, but I didn’t think I was tasting any Pu’erh and you seem to be getting too much (in a bad fishy sort of way). I love reading tasting notes to see the differences in how people experience teas.
