It was my first incursion into pu erh. It’s fairly mild, but the earthiness is still there, nice and smooth flavor. Great for multiple infusions, mellowing even more each time. The scent of the unbrewed leaf is a little off-putting, however once it’s brewed it’s more mild. Worth a try if you’ve never had one, but it’s defenitely not for everyone. It’s great replacement for your usual cup of coffee, and much healthier for sure.
