hmm. what can I say about puerhs – it seems like you either love them or hate them.

I am fairly new to the puerh scene but discovered they make a great substitute for coffee. This tea is low in tannins and not very acidic to the stomach.

The first infusion is indeed very dark, as several others have commented. The flavor is mildly malty and earthy. I added So Delicious coconut milk creamer to this because I prefer my black tea with some creaminess. This reminds me of a shiitake mushroom broth and made a nice breakfast drink.

Overall I was very pleased but I’m not sure it’s something I would go out of my way to find again.

You could also say that how you prepare it can depend on if you love or hate it lol.

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
