Mmmm I have been excited for this one since we ordered it.
The dry leaf smells tingly, not quite floral but . . . plant-y. Like a post-apocalyptic world where people are learning to farm again. Or Buckley’s. I don’t think I’ve ever had a tea quite like it. It tastes like an herbal, like a nice calm herbal, but the caffeine content is ridiculously high.
Pu’erhs tend to have a dark dark taste to them, but that is almost non-existent here. If I hadn’t know it was supposed to be a primarily pu’erh blend I wouldn’t have guessed it. The taste is complex, and I can’t wait to have another cup – but I can’t quite decide if I love it or am only meh about it.
Flavors: Fir, Flowers, Pine
