This is a tea takgoti sent to me since she knows that I enjoy trying pu-erhs. This one is quite nice. It has a very smooth taste. Of course it has that distinctive pu-erh fragrance. But I think I actually like this one. I will have to think on it further to determine what exactly makes it nice.

Update: Have now had three steeps of this and I like it more each time.

YAY! Keep going with the steeps! I’ve honestly lost count with how many I can go for on this one. It can stand up to a lot; I think I’ve gotten around 15, no joke.

I have kept on going. It’s pretty amazing. Until this last cup of tea, I’ve drunk only Pu-erh. Thank you so much for sending this. It is really wonderful.

You’re very welcome! This has warranted a Cheshire Cat grin on my end. It tickles me very much that you’re enjoying it.

15?! Wow. I wonder at what point the cups stop having caffeine… I’m always worried about caffeine levels and it makes me feel ridiculous. :(

And yay, more pu-erh! There’s been a lot of pu-erh drinking going on on Steepster lately.

@teaplz When I drink pu-erh, I usually start it hours before I know I’m going to stop drinking it, because I really drag it out. By then, the caffeine usually isn’t what’s affecting me, it’s the nice little pu-erh high. Mmm…pu-erh high.

Carolyn

@takgoti Yes, there was a little pu-erh high (with much giggling as I cleaned the kitchen). Very nice.

@teaplz Pu-erh is supposed to have quite a bit of caffeine compared to other teas so I’m cautious.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
