drank Pu-erh Classic by Rishi Tea
1828 tasting notes

Several weeks ago I added a whole vanilla beam, cut up, to a little over a half tin of this to see if that would jazz it up. I was concerned that it would be too much, but to my surprise there is little vanilla aroma now.

I washed the leaves this time and made it western style, which I think was a mistake. I think it would be better without the rinse when making it this way. Our first impression…this is a bit weak. But then I was chomping away on my celery and took a sip and suddenly I could taste the vanilla in it. Though still a bit weak, it is passable with food.

I won’t buy this tea again, but I am sure I can finish the tin without too much heartache now. When this is gone, I want to try some of the puerhs AmyOh has been reviewing and order a LOT of Teavivre’s tuo cha!

I think I will also look into the puerh at Tin Roof Teas. They only had loose, but it did smell good and there was no fishy aroma at all.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
