"There are many teas that undergo the pu-erh process, so differences in taste are to be expected. Also, methods of brewing can affect taste of tea. I first tried it after reading about the possible health effects of this type of tea. I liked it and have continued using it without noticing a difference in quality. Great tea!"
"This wasn't as strong as I'd hoped it would be, I bought it not for the supposed cholesterol benefits but because it was Pu 'er tea and I usually like the taste. It was a bit addictive though, so there was something in it my body liked. I was expecting a more full-bodied taste with more earthy-toned notes, but I liked it."
