I think this may be my favourite Japanese green that I own… :)

I know you’re into recipes, be sure to check out Rishi’s website today. Not only is it on sale, but there’s also a sole recipe there that uses this tea in a marinade!:) The thread w/ the 25% off coupon just convinced me even more- I must buy.

Oh Cha!

We’re best friends now!!! Thanks Cofftea!

Awww! Let’s meet up soon, well as soon as the weather allows. I don’t have a car and I don’t want you having to drive in questionable weather:)

Seeing that recipe got me wondering… type “recipe” in Rishi’s search box and you’ll get 11 of them! The Vanilla Mint Pu Erh hot chocolate interests me, but I couldn’t stand the 1st pu erh I tried so I’m absolutely terrified to invest money in it, even w/ the 25% off coupon.

Oh Cha!

Was the first pu-erh you tried a Shu or a Sheng? (Cooked or un-cooked?)

Pu-erhs are all sooooo different!

And FYI… You would freaking love both the Pu-erh Vanilla Mint, and the Pu-erh Blood Orange. Just trust me. Neither of them need milk or sugar or anything! Just water!! (That’s how I prefer them!) You really should try them! I don’t think you’ll regret it!

Cofftea

Not a clue, it was Adagio’s Pu Erh Dante. I can’t believe that was in only my 2nd loose leaf purchase! But then again so was white cucumber and that’s still one of my favorites.

Speaking of Pu Erh, check out today’s one day sale. So much for my opportunity to try it for free. Oh well.

Profile

Bio

I’m a foodie. I’ve worked in tea professionally, and the obsession never left. I’ve also worked at a wine bar (with cheese, truffles & charcuterie) and a teahouse/restaurant (with excellent artisan pairing dishes) on the side.
So I’ve done a lot of tasting… and you’ll notice I bring up food pairing a lot!

I’m all about sharing recipes and recommendations, so please feel free to throw any of yours my way, and should you ask I’ll be happy to do the same. I’m also old school with my brewing methods – so if you have any questions of brewing or artisan teaware, feel free to ask.

Activities:
Drinking artisan tea, indulging in an entire bottle of wine, savouring microbrewed beer, making everything from scratch, putting cheese on/with everything like a true Wisconsinite, spending months’ worth of paychecks on Amazon, and flipping through and smelling the pages of books I surely won’t get to for another 8-10 years.
