Taster’s Review:

The more I drink Pu-erh, the more I am liking it.  As I’ve mentioned before, I wasn’t always fond of it.  In fact, disgust would be a better way to describe my feelings toward Pu-erh.  But, since that time, I have learned how to brew Pu-erh and now that I brew it properly (well, properly for me, anyway), I actually quite like it.

The aroma of the dry tuocha is earthy but it is not as strong an earthy essence as some Pu-erh I have encountered.  Once brewed, the liquor is quite light in fragrance.  Likewise, the flavor is much lighter-tasting.  It is remarkably smooth and even.  The sometimes off-putting earthy flavor of Pu-erh is not present here.  Yes, it has an earthy quality to it, but it is rather delicate and quite nice.

The description above suggests that this has a liquorice flavor, and I must agree, I can taste the liquorice-like note in this, and it resonates throughout the sip.  This liquorice flavor highlights the deep sweetness to this cup.

this is definitely one of the most delightful Pu-erh teas that I’ve ever had the opportunity to taste.  I like it very much.
