    5 stars
    Currently my favorite tea
    September 5, 2012
    I have been a fan of oolong for a while now and have tried multiple varieties with a large range in flavors but currently find this one to be my favorite by far.

    Personally, I feel the first brewing with these leaves is the least flavorful but have found if you soak the leaves for a few minutes in just enough water to cover them before you add your hot water, the resulting tea better matches the full flavor of the later infusions. I have brewed as many as 8 infusions from a single serving of leaves without a noticeable diminishing in flavor but feel more can be achieved.

    I would describe this tea as having a slightly earthy bouquet with a good clean, slightly floral taste that you can only get from a high-quality oolong. It is difficult to adequately describe the exact character of this tea with its many nuances but I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of quality oolong teas.

    Not for everyone
    September 5, 2012
    This was my first time trying a Pu-erh tea. I thought I would be adventourous after reading the other comments here...

    Experiences may varry and tastes may differ between the different varients of Pu-erh but the first thing I noticed about the tea was the "earthy" aroma. This was not a bad smell by any means but unfortunately reminded me a little too much of all the time I have spent in an Ag. Barn in my youth.

    Ignoring the aroma, the taste was not bad and had some interresting nuances to it but was just not appetising to me.

    Being open-minded, I attempted to acclimate my tastebuds to the flavor but after the fourth or fifth cup I found my self liking it less and less. It also had a linguring after-taste that only time could deminish.

    Overall, I had to give it 2 stars because it appeared to be of good quality and it fufilled my desire to try a Pu-erh tea.

    I would encourage anyone to try new teas - if you don't like them, don't drink them, but always keep an open mind.
