Light aromatic flavour capable of withstanding 3/4 infusionsReview by Philip
This was my first taste of Puerh tea and it was an excellent 'starter.' It has a light, aromatic flavour and is capable of withstanding 3 or 4 infusions without losing colour or flavour. I was impressed with Canton Tea Company 's swift responses to my questions via email and my order arrived within 48 hours. Very impressed by the quality of the tea and Canton Tea Company. I shall definitely order more products.(Posted on 11/28/14)
Earthy and mild.Review by Rob
I found this to be a fairly tame but nonetheless rewarding tea. The liquor is a light brown and the leaves will withstand a good three or four brews before losing much potency. The characteristic 'earthiness' of pu-erh is definitely present but without the more powerful notes of some varieties. For me, this was rather disappointing, but if you are new to tea and want to try a pu-erh I would suggest this one. It has some of the sweeter flavours of lighter oolongs.(Posted on 4/2/13)
