an awesome tea!

when i smell the tuo dry, it smells sweet and green.

when i smell the leaves wet, they smell sweet, green and spicy.

when i smell the brewed tea, it smells sweet and spicy.

when i taste the brewed tea, it tastes sweet and slightly spicy

this tea did not need to rinse long and maybe not at all as i did not get the top quarter rinsed well with water but it still tasted awesome! :D

however i have one minor problem, i wish this tea tasted more spicy instead of slightly spicy. (this in no way affects the score) :)

if anyone wants the rest let me know. my review is what “I” think, others might find it wonderful

Kristal

“Bedbug blood” – That’s a very interesting descriptor!

Kirkoneill1988

I’ve had to deal with bed bugs now and then the only way to kill em is to hold em down and slide. It’s gross and I hate the lil buggers. Back on topic. Would you like to have the rest ?

Kristal

Wow, sorry you had to deal with bedbugs! Sounds horrible :(

Thanks for the offer, but unfortunately Pu-erh tea is a little too harsh on my stomach :(

Kirkoneill1988

Ok :) what tea is good for your stomach?

Kristal

Generally I drink green tea and different types of herbal teas (I explain it further in my profile). I find those are much gentler on my stomach- maybe it has something to do with the tannins?

Kirkoneill1988

i wouldn’t know :( do you take medications?

Kristal

Nope, I just always have had a sensitive stomach. A few years ago I had an ulcer or what was the beginning of an ulcer and ever since then I’ve noticed certain foods and drinks can upset my stomach.

Kirkoneill1988

An ulcer would do it. At least you can still drink green tea :)

Kristal

Yes, I am thankful for that :)

Kirkoneill1988

im not much for herbals ;)
