Strong Creamy Smell; and while it tastes somewhat like cream, it’s not overly creamy or sweet. A Little vanilla-y; not much tea flavor itself. Not one of my favorites.

Looks like a light green tea, smells fruity of pomegranate. Smooth, good for a change, though in general I prefer black teas and find green teas sort of weak.

A Very nice roobios. Rounded, mellow, very finely chopped. Don’t try and steep this in your old tea filter with 1/16" holes – it’ll go right thru. Steeps a medium reddish-brown.

Medium Dark, a Little Tannin, general-purpose Assam. Nothing too special.
Fairly fine cut, a mix of dark and golden tea leaves.

Definitely not a black tea – little tea flavor. Strong lemon and some honey, fairly smooth, is good for a break from the stronger teas. Sort of a shock when you’re used to “regular” tea a few times a day, this is like a unsweet Sprite in comparison. Different…

This tastes a lot like the Keemun Snail I got from a couple other tea distributors. Earthy, smooth, well rounded. Not tannic. But at the price, I think it’s not that much better than the other brands! it’s like $20/oz…

I bought a full tin of this based on a sample, and it’s not quite as good as the sample was. Still more mellow and smooth than non-pu-erh black teas in general, but the other pu-erh I rated I thought was a bit smoother. All the pu-erhs I’ve sampled seem more rich than regular black teas.
