This is my favorite Pu’er so far, I think. I tried it about a month ago, as a sample, and I just got another bag of it, and I want to order more.

It is a skull shining, mind blowing tea that immediately gets my Qi flowing, my ears popping, and brings me into a state of mindfulness.

The tea itself is so amazing to look at.
Dry, it’s a deep mahogany, and it looks so fragile, like books in the library of ancient Atlantis, and if you touched them, they would crumble. When you get it wet, it turns a deep black, and I want to touch it, and when I do, it feels really sturdy, kind of like oak leaves. The smell is sweet and ancient.

And it tastes so good! The only real description I can have of the taste is the aftertaste, which is sweet, with a teensy sparkle of salt, but it’s like someone sprinkled a few granules of a really finely powdered special salt, and every so often, a tiny particle melts on my tongue.

My favorite too! Geoffrey got me interested in it awhile ago and I was amazed at where it takes me. I call it my party pu’er because it’s transcendental. Skull shining is right.
Good pu’er to drink with someone you care about or good friends.

I wish I could step into a transporter and come hang out and drink Pu’er with you Bonnie!

Me too! We’d have some stories to tell (no microphones allowed!)

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
