Yay! I finally found a puerh that I actually really enjoy for the flavor and not just cause I’m trying to get myself to like it. I order 2 more yixing pots from an amazingly generous and knowledgeable tea seller on aliexpress. You can see the pictures (highly recommend) here:

They are so cute. I want more like a thousand more. I love them all.

Anyway, the seller included this tea because I was buying a two pots. I wasn’t too excited but since he was offering, I accepted. This tea honestly tastes like buttery sticky rice. Very delicious. Brewed up gongfu style as I wasn’t sure how else to make it. I’m really enjoying it. Has some definite puerh’ness about it but it works really well with the buttery sticky rice. YUM!

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
