I’m new to the world of Puer. I got several samples from a fellow steepster and just working my way through.

This literally is the 2nd Puer I’ve ever had so I may come back to adjust my score at some point, but all in all, I thought this was just great. A bit of a funky smell upfront, but you don’t get much of that in the flavor.

Really beautiful liquor, like a deep garnet red. Nice smell, a little bit of that wet barnyard, damp straw/hay with a tinge of fishiness, but all in a good way.

Still developing my palate, but this kind of reminds me of a rich cab. Has some smoke, wood (think like oak in a wine), hint of sweetness, puckerness of a dark chocolate. All in all very tasty stuff.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Honey, Leather, Straw, Tobacco

My Rating Scale:

95-100 Nirvana. Reserving this for once I try many more teas. This is sort of like your last meal (tea) before the electric chair kind of category.

90-94 Just awesome. I’d be happy if I had nothing but this to drink for the rest of my life.

85-89 Excellent. Very top notch stuff. Solid anchor in the cupboard and a staple in the rotation of what I drink.

80-84 Very good. Glad I drank it, probably will drink it again.

75-79 Good. Has something “good” about it making it interesting, but maybe isn’t as well rounded or is missing something to make it better. Something I wouldn’t be disappointed to drink, but nothing I’d go back to if I have something better.

70-74 OK. I’m not spitting it out or dumping the pot, but kind of unhappy about spending some of my limited daily caffeine intake on this and would prefer something else.

Not rating anything below 70. At that point, it’s not worth drinking and definitely not worth taking the time to describe it.
