I tried the Imperial Nectar Pu-er from The Green Grind as my first pu-er experience. As advertised, these teas are definitely very earthy, which may be off-putting to some. I however, enjoyed that aspect. This tea is a little more mellow than the Imperial Nectar, with more of a traditional black tea flavour. While I think I might like these teas to be a little more in-your-face, it is definitely tasty.
