I’m guessing that this is typical, run-of-the-mill, puerh tea, hence, its agreeable price. The taste is “earthy” but not disagreeable. No bells or whistles, and quite mild in body. The brick itself is extremely dry and brittle. The physical effect is nice; it’s quite drinkable — one could do much worse for an everyday puerh tea! By the third infusion, this has the feel of a very satisfying puerh tea, but still nothing to write home about. I consider this a “value” tea, rather than a stellar standout.
