By both smell and flavor, I think this tea needs to be coupled with seafood--sushi would work great. The aroma in particular reminds me of Japanese fish cakes. There's also a very light natural creaminess to the texture/mouthfeel. It loses appeal as it cools, so use a very good mug or be prepared to it fairly quickly.

Not bad at all, but definitely a tea that you need to be in the right mood for. Certainly worth trying, though I've only tried a few puerhs, so I'm not sure how typical this one is. I smelled the added spice most before brewing, but I'm not sure how cardamom tastes, so I'm not sure whether I can pick it out as a flavor here.
