From Teavana & Starbucks

After drying, the tea undergoes an additional fermentation process that provides an elegant earthy flavor. Our rich, loose-leaf pu-erh is carefully blended with a high-grade yunnan black tea. Well-balanced, smooth and mellow, the cup finishes with a noble floral note. (Teavana description)

The first thing you’ll notice is the pungent smell. This is immediately going to split people into loving or hating the tea. It’s damp and earthy, and smells of age, but betrays a slight sweetness underneath it. Moss in running water mixed with damp leaves comes to mind.
The next thing is the taste – which has to be split out into sections. This is a tea designed to be re-steeped three times.
1st steep tastes much like it smells. Hay, caramel, earth. It’s not very complex, save for a light sweetness on the back of the mouth between sips one expects from a Golden tea, while much subtle it does linger for a little while. Honestly though, the first steep is hard to get incredibly excited about, as it lacks the bite and layers I expect in a Pu-erh.
2nd Steep: They smell of Hay becomes more prominent and a few more layers get revealed.
3rd Steep: Still a strong flavor, but I think this is where the tea is best. The sweet after taste comes on sooner and lingers longer.

The tea leaves are full, uniform, and black with an earthy herbaceous aroma of wood and grass. In the cup the tea is a honey amber hue and has the same malty aroma with wood and a touch of mushrooms. The taste is smooth, balanced, with a savory feel on the tongue, slightly salty, pleasingly astringent, with a slight sweetness. The finish on the palate is smooth and malty. Cost: $0.32 per six ounce cup, sourced in part from Yunnan.
