Mmmmmm… I started with Da Yu Lin oolong this morning and then transitioned to this tea with a bit of Rainbow pu erh on top because it has larger leaves and tends to hold down the smaller particles of this tea, but the energy and flavour matches well. I nearly went into a trance after all the tea this morning and just made it to work on time (though my shirt was a little wrinkled since I didn’t have time to iron it). But here I sit at 9PM and still full of energy!

I’m going to start trying puerh in the mornings. It’s the time of year when I need all the energy I can get.

@cultureflip: It certainly works for me. I wake up bleary eyed and am still going by 9PM. I usually boost the energy charge again about 10AM with a milder oolong, but even when I don’t, I don’t feel the need for a nap mid-afternoon, which always happens when I drink coffee in the morning.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a kid when I used to have a strong cup of Earl Grey with my Grandmother. Six years ago I went to Taiwan, met a tea master and have been really appreciating Chinese tea in the gong fu cha tradition ever since. I even started a small online company selling the teas I can procure from tea masters in Taiwan and China. Can’t find a good aged pu erh? I’ve got it. Don’t like the cliff tea you got online? I bet I’ve got a better one. Want to try some different kinds of oolong? Got those too. I’ve got lots of gong fu tea brewing accessories as well.

Also, if you ever have a question about tea, accessories or brewing, I’d be happy to answer them. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll look it up! I have access to a wide range of tea literature that is out of print which I collected while in Taiwan.

Cloudwalker Teas is quite literally a two-person tea distributor. We believe in the teas we bring to the world through our online store are better than anything at almost every other place. We are tea purists, which means we don’t believe in mixing teas post production. A pu erh is simply that, pu erh. A green a green, oolong is oolong. We believe that teas have so many naturally different aromas and flavours that it is a shame to cover them up with flavourings and flowers.

When we review a tea, we take into account three components: aroma, flavour and chi energy. A good tea must have all three of these components to be considered at our store.
