This tea has an earthy tobacco flavor with a very forward astringency. Aroma and flavor remind me of the aroma of my father’s Holiday brand pipe tobacco in the 1970’s. A strong-flavored tea, I did not detect notes of caramel in the batch I received. As I am not overwhelmed by the flavor, I will continue to look for a Puerh I like better. This was the last of this 2 oz envelope and I will not be re-ordering. I don’t hate it, I just don’t like it very much.

Flavors: Astringent, Dust, Earth, Tobacco

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

Would you like to try a few pu’er teas shared as gifts? That way you don’t have to spend any of your own money on something you might not like.

Possibly! Sounds like a good idea.
