From Rishi Tea

Our top-grade of dark pu-erh has an espresso-like character, smooth body and a robust, molasses-like finish

I know that there’s endless Tea blogs out there that wax poetically about the taste of different Pu-erh teas.
To me they all taste the same.
Wood, Earth and Coco.
My wife says it smells like wet dog, but then again all she drinks is Earl Grey.
I really wish I could say I like Pu-erh but its a big Meh in my palette.

Another un-reviewed Rishi tea. As a blossoming fan of Puerh tea’s, I’m down with this keep-you-guessing sweet puerh. Couldn’t quite pin point it at the time, but the description does call for a molasses aftertaste, which might have been what I was after. I just need to try some molasses now.

I prefer cheaper more composted cake puers from youtube * cough * I mean ebay that smell and taste like soil. What can I say, I grew up on an acreage of garden, peat-moss, and rich earthly soil.

Nonetheless, this was a good tea and I would definitely drink it again. Sure picked up some stronger flavours with each steep and it steeped a solid 6+ times, each time enough for two 4oz cups.

Batrachoid

Ooh, I love molasses. You should try blackstrap, lots of potassium and iron and a strong red earth taste. Very likely the taste you can’t pinpoint. But do make sure you get unsulphered.
