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.
