This is a bit tannic (for a puerh) without a lot of depth. It’s a mystery why they named it “Bold Leaf”.

I’ve had a lot of difficulty with this tea. I attempted to gongfu in hopes that it will be more appetising. I was right in my theory! The dry leaf is small BOP of orange and dark brown leaf. The aroma is a very earthy and fungal tone. The steeped leaf is actually a little fishy smelling. The flavor improved to a deep earth and lake flavor. This is still not a great brew, but it is doable once gong fu’d.
Flavors: Earth, Fishy
HGTTB haha i hadn’t read the review of this one before i picked it out of the box to try. I don’t think it’s quite as bad as everyone thinks it is but i also wouldn’t brew this straight up western. It does have a little fishy smell to it but as far as the taste goes, it’s a pretty average cup. It’s nothing spectacular, but it’s not toss out worthy either :)
The first tea I tried that I absolutely hated – even rinsing the leaves and discarding the first infusion.
The flavor is terrible and will make you wince. I got exited about Pu Erh, but this has totally turned me off of it. Trust me, this Wegmans “Bold Leaf” Pu Erh will make you go
I tried it once, and it’s the smell that puts me off. It smells exactly like swampwater. I did a little research and tried to give it another shot—I rinsed the leaves as instructed, even discarded my first infusion and infused it once again—to no avail. This tea, while it may be good for you, smells awful. I simply cannot enjoy it.
