Description
Beautiful loose ripe pu'erh, harvested and produced at the famous Menghai tea factory in Yunnan province in southwest China. Rich in an earthy aroma, this pu'erh produces a thick, deep-maroon liquor that is wonderfully clear, and oh so smooth and mellow in flavor. Earthy, smoky, sweet and smooth.

I decided to test a bunch of tea from TeaLyra so I ordered a set and brewed them all the same. For our test, 1 full teaspoon of tea was used and all were steeped for 3 minutes in a 50mL teacup. To test how well the smell and taste held up, I also included a second brew during our test.

Possibly one of the ones we liked least. Both of us are Chinese and we both agreed this is PuErh is very weak. There is a light smoky scent, but the taste is bland and weak. The second brew was faint in both scent and taste.

We rated this tea 2.5/10

This is my first experience with Pu'Erh and got it on sale based on other reviews. I was not sure what to expect. It has a mildly pungent aroma that I could describe as "earthy" if generous and possibly "fishy" if not. Taking courage, I brewed it up western style with 2 min steeping and was pleasantly surprised at the mildness and there is definitely some interesting flavours going on including berries. Will have to return for second steeping to see how it develops but I kind of like it so far. For the price I guess its a good value introduction to Pu'Erh, but I am not sure I could justify the price of this if it wasn't on sale. Some of the premium varieties get pretty pricey.

I really like this tea, it’s sweet, smoky, and has great overall taste. This has become my daily go to tea. I’ve ordered several bags and haven’t been disappointed. The price is very fair.

Bought this because of the sale price and curiosity as I've never had Pu'erh tea before. Will definitely get more once I get through what I have. The first steeping is earthy and complex, and has a "mushroomy" finish to me, reminiscent of brie rind, with the second and third steepings becoming more black tea-ish with less emphasis on the mushroom notes.

This is one of those things that seems strange at first, but once you figure it out you can get to really like it, kind of like Scotch or specialty cheeses.
