I thought I already reviewed this! Drank over the weekend, AT my computer. How silly of me.

Leather is an accurate description for this. Think worn, aged, black leather. None of that soft english leather. I believe this was my first Pu-erh blend I’ve had, and I think that lead to the smoky quality in this tea. It was very strong to me, relatable to black coffee (can you tell I’m new to tea?). But not bitter or biting.

I enjoyed it, and will be making a butter tea out of this in the future.

I discovered a love for tea when I started a Ketogenic diet (http://www.reddit.com/r/keto). Cutting carbs/sugars meant I needed a daily caffeine fix in another form. I don’t like coffee by itself (and I dislike fake sweetners if possible), Mountain Dew is out of the question. Tea?

I started with very little tea knowledge. I grew up with my mom’s herbal tea blends that I hated – and every so often I’d get something from the grocery store to try out. No good. So when I went on my keto journey, I threw myself into learning about teas. I grabbed samples from all over the web and changed everything I knew about tea.

Now – I only drink tea by itself. No addins at all. I prefer black blends, or single-note greens. I like robust teas that don’t taste like flavored water, instead are a whole entity to themselves. I love matchas, masalas, and genmaichas. I’m learning about all kinds of teas – the possibilities seem endless. Yum.

My rating system, roughly:

100 = I will Marry You.
90-99 = Adore. Stockpile time!
70-89 = Good. Wishlisting this stuff!
50-69 = Decent, will finish my stock but not likely to buy again.
40-49 = Not a fan. Will try to sell/trade/give away my stock
00-39 = Crap. Maybe I’ll give it away. Maybe I’ll use it as fertilizer.
