drank Ancient Pu-Erh by World Market
221 tasting notes

Backlog from last night.

My tummy had been slightly threatening all day yesterday, and I have read that Pu-Erh is supposed to be good for digestion, so I thought I’d give this another try.

This tea just isn’t my thing. It has a scent to it that I can only describe as fishy. Do not want! At least not in my tea. I tried it with cream and sugar to see if it would mask that scent, but it didn’t.

On the plus side, it did seem to calm the tummy rumblings, so I would like to try a different Pu-Erh, and see if I can find one without the piscean scent.

Yes, definitely don’t give up on trying Pu-Erh based on World Market (I haven’t tried it but can imagine). I recommend Verdant and starting off with a shu then maybe trying sheng down the road. They have sample sizes of everything so that’s great. http://verdanttea.com/teas/yanxins-reserve-04-shu-nuggets/ this one is a fave of many, but I also love the Peacock Village (low stock so you might not want to get hooked but its great to show you what shu has to offer). And for a really trip: http://verdanttea.com/teas/cornfields-shu-tuocha/

Bio

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, my husband got me a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
