I love a good pu-erh tea. I did not always, but I do now! And this one was particularly tasty.

I was a little surprised at just how finely cut the leaves are in this mini tuo, but it did allow for a hearty strong brew, dark enough to satisfy my coffee-craving brother! Most pu-erh I drink, even in mini tuo form, has somewhat larger leaves, but it did not denigrate the flavor of this tea.

As far as pu-erh goes, I really enjoyed this one. It has a distinct malty, earthiness and minimal to no astringency or bitterness.

Thanks to TeaVivre for sending along this sample!

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
