drank Mint Pu-erh by Numi Organic Tea
1876 tasting notes

This wasn’t even meh, it was BLEH! I liked Numi’s Emperor Pu-erh but this was positively anemic.

I put three teabags in my 22 ounce Beehouse pot and steeped for a full five minutes. I expected good shu puerh body and favor. I got the taste of mint tea that had been mixed with very very weak cheap tea. It didn’t even taste particularly like puerh!

I think long ago I would have said, “Oh well, I can finish it.” Now I know that life is too short to drink bad tea. This was poured down the drain, and even my puerh-loving friend poured hers out. Ick.

If you are wanting and/or expecting mint tea, you might like this. I didn’t/wasn’t. I wanted puerh with a little mint flavor and that ain’t what I got! Even if I wanted plain mint tea, there are lots of better choices than this.

Do not want.

Your becoming such a tea snob ;) I gave this one away. I would have to go back through my notes to see what I thought beyond too much mint for me.

Hahaha, I’ve decided the same thing! Life is too short to drink bad tea. I’ve been pouring out a fair bit lately, I feel like, but I have so much good stuff to drink that I’d much rather enjoy it! (I still feel like I should at least try to drink the first infusion of something, but will absolutely no longer attempt a second infusion if the first is awful.)

I said that to Missy a few times on the tea that wasn’t terribly good from our Tropical Tea Co order. She drank it anyway. Well, most of it. Some of it became foot tea.

LOL! Dylan! I didn’t know anyone else did foot tea! Heehee, tell Missy that will be our little secret, just the three of us!

Missy

Woot! glad to see some one else doing it. :D

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…
