I have a sample of this from Garret, and I’d like to say, “Thank You Garret!”, because he is the epitome of customer service & hospitality.

I drank this during the afternoon & early evening, & that was hours ago, so I don’t really have much to say except that this is probably my favorite shu tuocha ever. A very rich flavor, a lot of depth, & sweet as well. No objectionable tastes, just a smooth chocolaty-ness & almost a coffee-like personality. I will probably need to get some more of these, at some point.

love the name of this! lol.

Dag Wedin

Haha i agree!

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, I wanted to try this one for awhile, just because of the name, LOL. These tuochas are big! They are super rich looking too, like a fudge brownie.

I left the leaves in my blue lotus pot last night, gave a quik rinse to heat the back up this morning, & I’m drinking a few more steepings before I move on. Still a very nice sweet flavor, with a bit of a black strap molasses edge.

Sil

Mmmmmm will need to try this one. :)

Garret sent me 2 tuochas, Sil. I almost sent one of them to you in the BBBB (LOL, I’ll tell you what it stands for later). Instead I sent you an oz of Zhu Rong, which I’m pretty sure you’ll love. I guess I could have sent 1 tuocha & 1/2 oz Zhu Rong, but…it’s too late! The box is sealed & FINALLY going to the PO today! The other ladies got teas you already have from thepuritea.

Sil

haha not to worry terri. No complaints here – there will be other months of having the box come at me from you heh. I can’t wait until i sipdown enough of my cupboard to be able to start digging into the puritea teas you sent. It’s just that they’re sealed at the moment so i can’t bring myself to open them yet..not until my opened teas are more gone. heh

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!
