Well, this is less offensive than I thought it could be, and as a result, I’m now a bit more interested in trying blends with chrysanthemum. This is what I’d call an easy-drinking pu’erh – it’s mild and earthy, no unpleasant fishiness whatsoever. I don’t know what chrysanthemum tastes like, as I haven’t had it straight, but based on this sample, I’d guess it’s pleasantly earthy? I think I have some straight buds; perhaps I’ll give them a shot later.
Not a favourite of mine, because I haven’t acquired a taste for pu’erh at this point, but it really wasn’t bad at all.
