drank Pu Erh Poe by Adagio Teas
312 tasting notes

I wound up making a big pot of this in the morning. This is the third time I’ve had this tea; I still can’t decide if I like it or not.

I think the smell is what keeps me from making it on a regular basis. The dried leaves smell exactly like fish. The nice thing about this tea is that it won’t oversteep. I was okay with the flavor at first, but it’s growing off me a little; it’s very mossy without being smooth like the other black teas in Adagio’s Silk Road Sampler. Think I’ll finish off what I’ve got left and call it done.

EDIT: Yep, I’ve decided. I don’t like this tea. This is only my first pu erh, so I am by no means an expert. I’d have to try more to see whether it was the flavor of this particular tea I disliked or if I’m just not a pu erh fan in general, but this just didn’t win my favor.

Bio

The name’s Holly, and I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is my happy place – it picks me up, it calms me down, it helps me focus, it helps me loosen my grip, it’s a little bit of positivity in each day. I do not drink alcohol, so tea is my recreational beverage. I love learning everything there is to know about it and sharing my experiences.

When I’m not drinking or writing about tea, I’m working at a music store and pursuing a Master’s degree in professional writing. You may also find me reading, writing, trying to learn French, cycling on the weekends, being a klutz, or making horrible puns and Star Trek references. Likely all at the same time.
