First things first, they say it’s been aged for 5 years: what does it mean? Is this a 2006? 2007? Does it mean it stops aging once I buy it? I guess it doesn’t really matter, I get what they’re trying to say.

Anyway, I like this Pu-erh.

You can smell that this tea is young has just starting turning to earth. I don’t get how anyone can compare the smell of it to fish. I like the taste. It’s rich, full-bodied and yet refreshing. The fact that this tea is still young gives you a mix of vegetal and mineral (earthy) flavours.

Definitely recommended to those who are new into pu-erhs.

I’ve been drinking tea for quite a few years now. My favourite teas include black teas from Ceylon, Assam, Taiwan, as well as any aged teas including Pu-erhs.

96 – 100: If I would be stuck drinking the same tea for the rest of my life, this would be it!
81 – 95: Highly recommended! Among the best I’ve ever tasted!
61 – 80: Recommended. Not the best in its kind, but definitely worth a try.
41 – 60: Neutral. Not bad, but I probably won’t buy anymore.
21 – 40: I get that this is tea, but I don’t like it and wouldn’t recommend it.
01 – 20: Foul drink. Quick! Something else to wash down that awful taste.
