drank Chocolate Puerh by Numi Organic Tea
2542 tasting notes

This pretty much fell into the “meh” category – I actually love pu-erhs in all their odd, stinky, earthy, woodsy and dark glory. It’s hard to actually taste any pu-erh in here! This reminds me of a spicy chocolate milk, especially after I added soymilk to it. It isn’t terrible but definitely not what I was hoping for. I will have to try adding two teabags next time around because this was a little weak. Might be an ok dessert drink?

I’ll be glad to get back to my regular tea collection next week. :)

Amy, I think you are right about Red Blossom. I just drank what I thought was the 1993 Sheng and it is definitely a Shou. My description of the Shou fit your description of the Sheng. An error on their part without a doubt.

Uh-oh. Maybe they put the wrong label on the tea?! :-/

Charles Thomas Draper

How could they possibly screw that up?

TeaBrat

Sorry!!!!

Charles Thomas Draper

No reason for you to be sorry.

I’m just trying to sympathize…. :-)

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
