This is an excellent loose puerh tea from Berylleb King Tea. I admit though I have yet to gongfu it. I brewed it today western style as I am getting ready to go in for the late shift at work. This tea has a natural sweet note and a reasonable amount of fermentation flavor. For those with an aversion to fermentation flavor it is not very intense. It is hard for me to describe the sweet note in further detail, perhaps cherry or dates, hard to say exactly. I am just very glad I bought this tea. I think loose puerhs are best when you need to western brew a puerh. You don’t need to worry about the leaves breaking up. This on is on par with the best loose ripe puerh I have had from Mandala or Whispering Pines. I am not saying it tastes exactly like one of theirs but I think it is just as good.

I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 30 seconds.

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
