Very GoodGoodOverpriced

I think that if I were new to young, raw pu-erh and thought that they were all bitter and undrinkable, this might 'wow' me in that it is sweeter, fruity, and definitely can be consumed now. But, compared to other young, raw pu-erh I've tried, it's really not special. It's also higher-priced. And, I really didn't like the way the bitterness and astringency sat in the flavor profile. This didn't taste like a tea that would age very well (I speak from experience) and wasn't all that good now. I think that there are other, better, and less expensive young, raw pu-erh out there if you're looking for something to drink right now.
