Puerhs are still something I’m learning to like. I’ve had some that were awesome, and some that I absolutely HATED.

Trying this one, I think I’m going to have to explore the green puerhs more – it had an amazing depth of character without that occasionally overpowering leathery or earthy taste. It was flavorful while being mellow, and tasty without overpowering.

This tea could also do more steeps than I could drink.

Good stuff.
