From Asiatica tea

The most popular of Chinese black teas, long-term consumption of pu-ehr can lead to lower risk in stroke. This full-bodied tea also acts in getting rid of toxins in the body, for helping indigestion, and for removing phlegm from the throat.

I remember receiving a chocolate tea from a friend, where the tin had to be opened twice. Those tins were a little difficult to open, but not as difficult as the tin that encased this tea. Both covers were hard to get off, as it wasn’t so much they were stuck, just the way the tins were made.

The tea itself isn’t much. Full curled brown to black leaves, with a lightly woody aroma.

Steeping gives it a better texture, very earthy and dark.

The liquor gives you that very familiar pu-erh rich earthy aroma, as well as that very handsome deep thick color. I have likened myself to smokey and strong teas, and pu-erhs are some of the best teas you can have.

The flavor is not as strong as you would like it to be. There is that earthy and smokey flavor, like a fresh forest, but it isn’t as rich as I can recall other pu-erhs to be. It is quite rich, don’t get me wrong, but not a brilliant richness as, say, Imperial Organic’s bagged pu-erh.

Nonetheless, you get a nice cup of pu-erh that is full bodied and rich.
