"Others have said that Pu-erh tea is an acquired taste that's not for everyone. Well, I guess that I'm one of those for whom this tea is not. The aroma and taste are both a bit too "earthy" for me, perhaps a little bit too fermented, like drinking compost. This is just a personal feeling, because there are evidently plenty of people who love Pu-erh tea."
