This honeysuckle tea can be steeped multiple times in a sitting without becoming bitter. This particular pu-erh is cooked and has been aged for about 4-6 years.

Missing the Honeysuckle
I ordered a sample of this and it was completely void of Honeysuckle flavor. It tasted like a rich, bold, earthy Pu Erh with perhaps the tiniest bit of sweetness but I would not describe it as a honeysuckle sweetness at all. I found it was a delicious Pu Erh never the less.
Not used to pu-erh
I ordered this to just have a pu-erh on hand to try in little bits at a time because I know it's an acquired taste and I would love to appreciate it more. Unfortunately I don't think my tastes are tuned well enough yet. It is very truly earthy, not just grassy earthy but like the fresh soil earthiness too. I think it's a beautiful tea, and I look forward to exploring it more and learning to really appreciate it's flavors. I get the hay and molasses that is mentioned in other reviews, but that isn't something I'm used to with tea, which is why I only gave 3 stars. I think that will grow over time.
Mmm...this pu-erh is fantastic. It's a wonderful mix of earthy and sweet. The two go well together and balance each other out. Even my husband likes this, and he's not too keen on pu-erh. I'll be ordering more soon since I HAVE to have this "in stock" at all times.
I tried this one first as a sample and couldn't resist buying more.
It was the first Puerh I had tried, and it remains my favorite. It is both sweet and earthy without ever becoming bitter. As an added bonus, I find that re-steeping the leaves 2-3 times only seems to make it more delicious.
Handy on Hand Pu-erh
I usually enjoy pu-erh from cakes or nuggest but it sure is nice to have a few loose leaf pu-erhs on hand and this one is tops!
I agree with Leah about it having some surprising elements in it and I love honeysuckle !!!
A very good loose leaf pu-erh!
At first, this tastes like a regular puerh. It's very nice and earthy with notes of hay, molasses, and a bit of rich honey as well. It is smooth and relaxing, but it has a surprising finish! All of a sudden it's super sweet and floral, pure honeysuckle! It's a strange combination, super earthy and heavily floral, but it goes together really well.
