This is a very enjoyable pu-erh. I am fairly new to pu-erh but finding the journey adventurous. I got this sample from a friend and opened it up today. Has a nice citrus note with some earthy components. The leaves are very tight and need to be broken up then softened with a rinse then broken up more. 30 sec first steep. Aroma of brew is subtle earthy but no smokiness that I enjoy. Flavor has a bit of citrus followed by dryness then a bit of earth. No pungent flavor or aroma. Great tea but I would like to have a bit of smokieness like other pu’s I have tried.
