1999 Vietname Loose Pu-erh

My Review

Don’t make this your first pu-erh tea. You’ll likely find yourself shocked by what is quite a musty aroma, and upon first taste you’ll probably find yourself wondering what all the fuss is about. (I mean seriously, people pay hundreds of dollars for this?!)

But pu-erh is truly an acquired taste. You grow used to that earthiness. You start feeling past the mustiness and sense the smokiness that underpins it. Then, when you’ve reached that stage, come to this fine pu-erh, harvested in 1999 around the Vietnam-China border region. Come and enjoy a pu-erh that starts slow but blossoms around the third infusion with a surge of sweet smokiness. Every mouthful is ended with a long, satisfying finish. Lovely.
