This was ok. It says BOLD Leaf…I really don’t think it was that bold, but it wasn’t as harsh as some Pu-erh’s can be so I think it tasted nice. It’s wasn’t bad – it just wasn’t awesome either.

Our newest offering is an organically grown, full leaf version of Pu-erh. The dry leaf of this selection is dark and rich in appearance. Upon brewing, you will notice the unique damp, earthy scent characteristic of a fine black Pu-erh. Our Organic Bold Leaf Pu-erh has a smooth, deeply fermented flavor that puts this selection in a class all its own.

I think this finally convinced me that shou (cooked/ripened) pu-erh has its merits. Usually, I head for the sheng instead of its fishier sister, but this was a clean offering on dry sight alone. Taste-wise, it was earthy, woodsy, sweet…all things I don’t associate with cooked pu-erh. And it didn’t leave my stomach with a feeling of, “Why did I just drink that?!”
