I really do enjoy pu-erh teas and this one is pretty high on my list. Especially of the ones that I can identify, seeing as I have a few at home I just can’t figure out what company made them!

In any case, it’s been another long, stressful day at work and I felt the need to relax. I had just eaten a large lunch and clocked back in when it became eminently clear that I needed some nice pu-erh to help keep my stomach settled and my senses alert.

Once it was brewed, I smelled the tea and actually said out loud, “Yes! This is exactly what I need!” It was sort of silly. I guess it’s a good thing there aren’t too many people near my desk.

What I love most about a good pu-erh like this is how it transports me. I smell the tea and have a sip and I’m camping in the woods, huddled in a warm sleeping bag as a fallen tree falls apart eaten by termites next to my tent. * sigh * This is where I want to be right now. And this is where I feel like I am when I enjoy this tea.

Delicious!

Oh I know what you mean…when you are transported and have a mini-vacation and your soul is rested for a moment. It is a practice that is important. Being in the moment lets us be calm and content.

Exactly, Bonnie! I’ve also recently picked up my yoga practice again (after a number of months “off”) and it’s helping me in the exact same way that a fine tea like this does. I had never thought of it like that until just now and I have to say THANKS for helping me see it from another (awesome) point of view!

What a great review! I sometimes say things out loud and feel a little self conscious about it. Being silly is a good thing!

I’m with you on wanting to be camping in the woods, too.

And the Yoga! My wife and I both practice daily now, and I agree that the calming feeling I get from my practice is similar to the feeling when drinking a quality tea.

Bio

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!
