This one, for me, is hard to rate. Upfront it has a really pleasing earthy taste and enjoyable complexity to it. The problem for me is, as I continue to drink it, I start to get a bitter taste. As I continue to steep it, the tea does start to mellow but there is still a slight bitterness to towards the end. I would really love this tea if I could just capture the pleasing taste that it has and lose the bitterness that develops toward the end.

I have been a tea drinker almost all of my life. In 2008 I was able to accompany my wife to a conference she had in Shanghai. At one of the dinners I was introduced to the Nectar of the Gods – Pu’er and I have been hooked ever since.
