Good loose leaf
Mark – CA – October 26, 2019

Of the loose leaf pu-erhs I've tried, this is one of the better ones by far. Some of the character I get from a traditional 20+ year aged cake is missing, but that is expected from a loose leaf style. I'm able to get good flavor for 2-3 cups without added bitterness. Smooth like most pu-erh teas.

Great intro pu-erh; great price
Bri – MA – December 11, 2018

I purchased this when Upton was sold out of my normal tuo cha pressed-style pu-erh. I find this one less “earthy,” but still satisfyingly rich. Plus, all of my kids like this and so do several friends who had never had pu-erh before. Buying more to continue sharing the tea love.

Great for Kombucha
Lisa – VA – December 08, 2018

I have made kombucha with Pu-erh teas for many years due to its earthy flavor. This is probably my favorite, now that I have found it. It has the classic Pu-erh earthiness, but it produces a bright, auburn, almost crystal-like kombucha -- and, when cold, it is very reminiscent of root beer!
