This is my first try of Pu-Erh. It's very strong. The aroma is similar to damp soil. The liquor is very dark. I think this tea is strong enough for milk or cream and sugar. I will be careful in my next selection of a Pu-Erh. If you enjoy a really bold cup of tea, this might be what you are looking for.

This is not my favorite loose-leaf ripened pu-erh. It's palatable and noticeably better than random ones I've sampled. The aroma is dusty, not terribly rich or complex. Pretty smooth flavor. Enjoyable. I prefer ZH26.

And of course, I really strongly prefer Sheng Pu-erh. I do not think Pu-erh is Upton's strong suit.
