All I can say is that for 4 dollars this is some flipping amazing Pu-erh. The liquor is dark like coffee. Smooth. Earthy. Almost cacao like. If you combine this with a carmel rooibos it is heavenly.!
This tea is a great value. It is very rich and full-bodied, but also very dusty. The dust gives it a smoky, slightly astringent flavor that I haven’t encountered in puer before. If you are not a fan of this flavor, rinsing the tea before steeping diminishes the dust problem.
