I have never had the opportunity to sample the pricier range of pu-erh that has ripened for at least a decade, but these mini nests are undoubtedly a good way to get acquainted with the flavour.

Pu-erh is – more so than any other tea – an acquired taste. To me it is rich and earthy and compares completely to the smell of a forest floor after a heavy rainshower in summer. Notes of old wood are also there, but the tea has a very mild taste to it, there is barely a hint of sourness or anything bitter in it. Virtually no astringency.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec
