This brews a light orange colour with a slight tinge of pink in the centre.
This is a smokey one! There’s a bit of the leafy earth in here, with some honey and maybe a touch of floral hiding way off in the background.
Tastes like a campfire, smokey with a lot more leaf/earth/dirt than on the nose, there’s a bit of peach flavour that comes in as well. The honey and floral notes are still there in the background.
This one has a very interesting smokiness to it that I didn’t expect from a pu-ehr. I find this one is rather light and easy for a pu-ehr, and even with that smokiness I could easily drink this often.
