I bought a 50g sample of this after reading all the rave reviews on Steepster, but sadly it was a little disappointing. The tea is pretty good—strong with that Menghai bitterness. But it’s just sort of…flat. Hard to describe—this tea just tastes so average, with very few flavors jumping out at me. It’s sort of like eating mild salsa. It tastes like salsa, it looks like salsa, but it’s just not as interesting as eating the spicier, more interesting stuff.

Did this one just arrive in the mail? I always try to let any puerh sit in open air a few days when I get them in. They can go flat during the shipping process. And if I know Berylleb there is a little desiccant packet in with the tea in the envelope. They suck all the moisture out of the tea.

Huh, that could be it. I’m gonna try sticking it in my trusty pumidor bucket, will report back.

I think that will help. They all taste flat to me right out of the box. Try it in a week as that is usually how long I wait. Cakes , sometimes a month.
