When trying to get into Shou Pu’erh we bought a lot of it, this being one of them. While not the most flavorful of Ripe pu’erhs that we’ve tasted it is any easy drinker. That classic moisture rich toiled soil taste that is distinctive to ripe pu’erhs is present and is reflective of what a good Shou should provide. While it lacks some of the richer fruity notes and earthier base, it is a pu’erh we’d would recommend for those trying to figure out the base flavor profile of a ripe pu’erh

I was personally disapointed by this tea. There was no complexity. Just sort of dirt and old wood, which is fine but it was dull.

my second gong fu, and my first puerh if you dont include the fish fest from a few weeks ago. i have seen alot of reviews where the puerh is described as “earthy”, but i wasnt prepared for this. this was next level earthy. it tasted like you walked into an old abandoned house, went down the stairs into the dank, musty cellar, and drank it. the cellar, not the puerh. after a few steeps the flavour reminded me of an old second hand bookstore. during the last infusions the earthiness came in the form of having a beet like taste. i enjoyed this quite a bit, and cant wait to go further down the puerh road.
