Another thing has happened that I never thought would happen. A long time ago, when I only had fishy-smelling puerh tea, I liked the taste though not the aroma. I liked puerh tea and especially found it soothing when my tummy was angry. But I said I never woke up in the morning thinking, “Gee, I sure would love a cup of puerh tea right now.” Keemuns or black tea blends always had that honor.

Having now tried Teavivre and Purepuer.com puerh teas, I couldn’t get it off my mind this morning. Since today is tea party day, after all, I wasn’t going to make any tea this morning, but my girls each had a pot in front of them at the table as they did their schoolwork and I caved. This is so good, and this is a resteep, making it such a bargain as well. Warm earth aromas with clean yet horsey leather and the scent of osmanthus peeking through, I think I am becoming a puerh….addict? Snob?Aficionado maybe! I can’t wait to try even more puerhs!

So glad your children are enjoying tea, puerh and greens at that! I am fascinated by the idea of osmanthus flavored puerh… I have a bag of dried osmanthus I purchased from Jerry Ma at China Cha Dao, and on the suggestion of a Chinese friend, have used it for adding flavor to various green, black and oolongs. It is a flavor that is highly addictive!

It adds a lovely aroma, very subtle yet still distinctive and noticeable. What a great idea! I didn’t know anyone sold it by itself!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four 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.

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

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