Reminds me of the first Pu-erh tea I tried in November; the round compacted little things, but I think I like this one better.  To me it’s a healing tea.  I tried it  the day after I had the stomach flu (first time in 2 yrs I had that).   This tea was a big welcome to me as I only had water in the last 24 hours before brewing this tea.  

The color is a rich brown  similar to coffee.  The taste is smooth and good although totally different from Assam tea.  I think I’ll purchase some of this when I finish up all my samples and need more tea.  photos below- more  Pu-Erh tea  from other sources than Upton.  One of the squares made 5  ( 5 oz. each) cups  of tea.
