Then you'll truly be missing out. I know what you're saying, but I think you're over-generalizing. Neither good puerh nor good greens should taste like what you probably have in mind. :)

wait a minute guys, pu-erh for all technical purposes, is green tea. However, I do not think the Phoenix taste anything remotely like green tea.
