Sorry but this smells really gross…like dirty socks.
It’s very dark brown in color.
Thankfully it doesn’t taste like it smells!
It’s Bold but not bitter and it’s an even taste that starts and ends the same. It’s probably one of the better loose leave blends of pu-erh that I have tried so far…if you can get past the stench! I only infused for about 2 minutes as others I have tasted I don’t like oversteeped thus far. I am far from an expert on pu-erh but this one is ok in my book.
