I should have read the other comments about steeping this tea because the recommended 3-4 min at boiling temp give this tea a nasty astringent taste. Maybe the fact it was likened to a green tea should also have clued me in. Bleh.
I re-steeped at 80C for 2 min and that turned out better – apparently the leaves weren’t totally ruined. This cup was surprisingly sweet and a bit floral with an earthy undertone. It’s not a tea I’d immediately be able to identify as a pu’erh if I were to, say, drink it blindfolded, but then my experience with this type of tea isn’t really that great (working on it though!). I would’ve liked to try this tea again from the start with the reduced steeping temp, but unfortunately I only bought one nest, so that’s it I’m afraid. *sad face *
