These are alright after you get past the first couple flash steeps. Made the mistake of drinking those instead of dumping them and they were riddled with strong ammonia and barn floor flavors. After you get past that stage; it’s a palatable ripe pu’erh with a strong, nearly overpowering rice flavor. I did a single tuocha in a 150 ml gaiwan and that was probably a mistake, since even the short amount of time it took to slap the lid on the gaiwan and pour out the liquid created a frighteningly strong, opaque brew. Can’t say I’ll be revisiting my pouch of these any time soon. Maybe in a couple of years when they lose some of the ammonia and wet pile notes. It’s a unique pu’erh, that’s for sure.
