Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"The really interesting thing is that I also kept getting a note of dark chocolate on my tongue in the aftertaste. It was kind of playing peek-a-boo with me, but was there consistently as I sipped the cup down in rapid fashion. While I had to question whether I was really tasting it or if it was all in my head, I noticed it again at a later date and it is one my favorite parts of the cup. "

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"The value and convenience factors for this tea are tremendous... it lasted me the entire day, which has a lot to say for its stamina. A kind of cooked rice meets birdseed formula that is a strange but winning aroma. The flavor palette shifts over the course of 6+ infusions, from intense pu-er potency to mildly sweet and oak-cask notes."

8.5/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"Once getting beyond the funky earthiness of this tea, it's quite rewarding. This is real-deal pu-erh, and I feel that it benefits from its longer steep times as opposed to the gong-fu approach. It really throws itself out there and isn't ashamed to be itself. It's definitely not a tea for everyone (as with most pu-erh teas) and either you love it or you hate it. "

Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"As I sipped my tea, waiting for the third pot to steep, I found myself wondering how on earth anyone ever came up with the process that produces pu-erh? Why did that seem like a good idea? It’s like the first person to eat a lobster. Was it on a dare?"
