I previously tried Wegmans loose-leaf ginger orange puerh and hated it, but this time I think I’ve found a puerh winner! No strong fishy taste or smell at all. Most of the nose/taste is roasted barley with slight undertones of hey and vegetal. No “sweet” taste at all. Overall, a delicious and comforting cup, but with subtle nuances that make it a delight.
I will try subsequent steeps to see how the flavors evolve.
