First review. I’ve learned my lesson with Pu erh’s and did a very quick rinse when I smelled the tell-tale fishy smell on the dry fine bark-like minced tea. Glad I did too…because even though the smell was faintly there the taste was not present on a 3 minute steep. As I do with Pu erh, I took a sip without anything added which was just dull and then added cream and sugar. Mocha and nice but still too weak for me. Let it go another minute and a half…ah…better…dark and rich like coffee and oh my word! You know that fishy taste…well it did present itself for a split second and then it morphed into a tea leaf flavor like it’s supposed to do. Leafy tea with some acid and no heavy vegital flavor and mocha as a bonus. A Pu erh hat trick! No flavor added or needed. I think people who gag on Pu erh could handle this and it might be the right introduction. Do have as a latte and add cookies or a bagel!

Grandmother to 3 teenaged girls and 5 young boys. (we all drink tea!) I began teatime in the Summer over 30 years ago when my children were little. We took a break from play for tea and snacks every day. My children loved tea time.
There are several tea houses close to my home and a Tea Festival in Boulder. Fort Collins is a bit of a foodie town. We brew lots of Beer (Fat Tire is one brand) and have several Spice Shops (Savory was one featured on Food Network).
Colorado State University is a mile from my home and the Rocky Mountains begin to climb at the end of my street. The climate is semi-arid with LOTS OF SUN AT 5000 feet. (Heavy Winter snows start in higher elevations). Living my whole life in Northern California (Silicon Valley) I have to admit that I LOVE IT HERE!!!
I attend a wonderful Greek Orthodox Church and enjoy cooking ethnic foods (all kinds). I am disabled with Migraines and Fibromyalgia.
