My first taste of Pu-erh; wasn’t too thrilled with this style/product/brand. I particularly liked the earthy aroma—definitely a wet wood/earth smell/flavor to it. This is what I was expecting and it met that expectation well. Added to the wet tones was a hint of smoke. The infusion isn’t as strong as I thought it would be—maybe I used too much water…? The cake also broke up in the water much more quickly than I expected—the cake had disintegrated entirely before I was done pouring the water.
Overall, it was okay. Is that because I’m not a Pu-erh fan? Is it the product? I don’t know. It was an easy purchase (Amazon, an add-on to a merchandise order at the last minute) though. I’ll drink it again and next time add less water to see if that improves the strength. I don’t know if I’d purchase it again, though.
