The bad: I was drinking through my YUNOMI teas today and put them on hold after I smelled this.
The good: AllanK sent me this along with some shou in our swap.I have been really excited to start exploring more pu’erh as I begin to look at buying my first shou cake on my birthday (over 60 days away still). However the aroma of this one has put Japanese and pu’erh teas on hold. It is teas like this that are persuading me to stop trying lower end green, oolong, and white teas. The aroma of this tea makes me happy enough to not worry about the taste. I rate on flavor though and this has it. Honestly, no bitterness in a black tea… that makes me one happy drinker :)
This is something I will savor.
