My third pu-erh from Angrboda! This one is different in two ways: it’s a green tea in type and it’s a toucha in shape.

The toucha part was really fun, actually, watching it slowly unravel. (Sadly, I didn’t get any pictures.) And it takes the guesswork out of how much tea to add!

Weirdly, this green pu-erh tasted much more like black tea than the regular pu-erh did! It was a nice sort of bracing black tea, like an Assam, maybe. Then I think I oversteeped it and it became dangerously bitter until I added a lump of sugar.

Enjoyable! I think I still like that very first pu-erh best so far, though….

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 0 min, 30 sec
Cofftea

Cait, excuse my confusion, but how can a tea be both a pu erh and a green tea at the same time…? Do you mean its a green (also called raw or sheng) pu erh?

Cait

I think that’s what I mean! I’m still figuring out the pu-erh (does it have a hyphen?) terminology.

Cofftea

Eh. There are different ways to pronounce it so I’m not surprised there are different ways to spell (or punctuate) it.

Angrboda

cofftea, no clue. thjat’s what the company called it. i don’t really get the dinstinctions between piu-erh types, but from what i gather i think maybe they just made the pu-erhj based on a green tea,

caitm, i’m so glad yoiu liked thjis one. iw wasn’t really a fan so i have ti admit i took yuor pu-erh sampling reqiuest as an opportinuty to get rid of it,.

(argh stupid finger-! i hioe you can bioth decipher this!)

I like tea!

Since joining Steepster, it’s become apparent that this statement desperately needs further refinement.
