I've tried multiple cups of this and it is solidly good. What I can not tell you is how it differs from other Pu'er teas (I've enjoyed all that I have gotten so far). For reference, my favorite tends to be Assam followed by Irish or English breakfast. I can not advise you as to which is better for your tastes between the various pu'er type teas, I like both the "Bold Leaf" and the "Royal" Pu'er teas If you like one of them, you will like the other, even if you prefer one over the other. If you are new to Pu'er style teas, you can confidently try this one and I suspect that you will enjoy it.
