The after lunch pu-erh. Weather is warming up in San Francisco and I do think I might have issues keeping up this daily pu-erh drinking when it’s warm and sunny because the tea seems a bit heavy. Perhaps some shorter infusions would solve the problem. I wonder if anyone here has ever cold brewed a pu-erh? I might need to try it!

update: the tea was still good after I added a couple of ice cubes and some soy milk. :)

I have sun-brewed a puerh before, it turned out pretty good, i drank it iced :)

TeaBrat

I’m going to try it!

Awesome! We use glass when we make the sun tea cuz plastic for some reason makes it taste funny to me.

kOmpir

Did you get it on eBay?

TeaBrat

no to Ebay – I didn’t even realize they had pu-erhs. Do you buy from there?

kOmpir

I do, but not that much lately. A lot of counterfeit Pu Erhs circling there, and I usually go for auctions.

TeaBrat

yeah I’m a little leery, would rather buy from someone I trust…

ScottTeaMan

I would avoid all teas and food items sold on ebay.

I cold brewed the Teavivre Shu. It was ok. Much better brewed and than chilled as opposed to a traditional cold brew….

Good to know, Charles…

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
