Ok, now this pu’erh I can handle!

The dry leaf did not smell offensive (like some other pu’erh), I picked up mostly citrus. Tastes good too! Maybe it would be too much of a generalization to say I don’t like pu’erh. Actually, I’ve never really said that, I only said I didn’t like DAVIDs chocolate pu’erh. The first few sips I get almost none of the oh so unmistakeable pu’erh taste. As it cools I get a bit more of it but it’s not too much to be a turn off. Ladies and gents, we have a winner. For me, anyway.

I’ve heard a few people say this one is good, so I may have to try it. I’m not a huge fan of orange flavored teas, especially then ones with the orange peel/rind in it. So I’m a little cautious about trying this one. How orangey would you say this one tastes? Is it in your face, or just a hint of orange?

Bio

I started drinking loose leaf tea in the spring of 2013 (why do we feel compelled to mark the date of tea drinking somewhat like addicts counting their sobriety days?)

Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I lean heavily towards flavoured black teas. I’ve started to crave the occasional straight oolong and green but so far unflavoured black teas leave me unimpressed.

I’m learning so I drink them all. Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

Note*: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity.

Note**: My partner, our home improvements, gadgets, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
