This doesn’t smell like much when dry. After a rinse steeping the wet leaves smell sweet, like honey graham crackers. I have been rising my ripe pu-erhs twice.
Aged shou rarely tastes like much to me. This one isn’t much different. It’s only a little sweet, a little nutty, a little creamy, and not fishy at all. It’s somewhat bland but still enjoyable. I enjoy this tea for soothing a raw throat.
