I only started truly getting into pu er as of mid June of 2016, and tea as a whole at the beginning of 2016.

I started out with Mandala Tea, and I keep going back as often as I can, although I’ve now expanded to also include Yunnan Sourcing, and White2Tea with Verdant Tea on the list of places to try next.

I am a beginner at reviewing but I am trying to improve, so don’t be surprised if I miss some subtler tastes or have trouble naming a scent or flavor that comes through.
