This was a fun tea to try. It was very sweet, fruity, with some vanilla and oak flavors. The tea was very smooth, and left my mouth with a cool spearmint-like sensation. I wasn’t that fond of this tea at first, but by the second cup, I was really enjoying it. This is the one puerh that I am tempted to add sweetener to.

Sweetening intensified the bourbon to me.pretty strong on that first steep!

Next time I brew some I will see how it is with some sugar. Maybe brown sugar?

Maybe honey?

Bonnie

Brown or regular sugar…sometimes honey has it’s own flavor and alters things. I’d try a lighter sugar first, even agave.

Thanks, Bonnie!

They’re selling in the shop here and talking about doing something similar with a local distillery. Wouldn’t it be fun.

If your local shop does wind up doing a barrel-aged puerh, I hope you’ll write about it!

Tea means so many things to me, it is so deep and it is revealing new meaning to me all the time.

Tea is a mindfulness practice, and a doorway through which to explore different philosophies, cultures, and historical times. Tea is hospitality and a way of communion. Tea is an art, a ritual, and a tradition. Tea is a complement to the foods I eat (preferably vegan desserts) and is something I enjoy collecting and curating.

I love to swap, or even just send people samples, so if there’s anything in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message!
