As a puerh drinker in a past life, I feel like I have been the only person to say something about puerh dante besides how awful it is. I don’t know, I guess I have low standards. I think it’s the kind of tea that you like for it’s flaws. It’s very smooth, which one would expect from cooked puerh. There is almost a malty flavor upfront that ties the earthy flavors together. I don’t know if people dislike it because of off flavors, but I find this tea to be comforting even if it has off flavors. Going in the woods and smelling rotting vegetation might not smell pleasant at first, but you learn to like it. At least, that’s how I view this tea. I didn’t like it at first, but I grew to like it. I’ve tasted better cooked puerhs, but nothing that made me think less of this tea.
