Second review. :(

Today this flavored puerh just didn’t work!
I steeped it the same length of time as before, same amount of tea and everything and it was weak and insipid. A limp orangy, hibiscusy, barely puerhy flavored brackish drink. Blech! You’d have thunk that I used tepid water and a 1 minute steep time.
Oh No I deh ent! I used boiling H2o and 6 minute steep! Right!

I couldn’t hack drinking the swill!

Some other time I’ll try again. So sad. So sad. So sad. Sigh……

Down goes the rating until it deserves to raise again!
Naughty Puerh! :(

I’m sure the hibiscus didn’t help. Why do tea companies add it to everything?

I don’t mind it if it’s blended right and does not dominate everything. You have to be a master blender though. Tempering the acid with something that tames it.

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.
My family is Bi-racial (African-American, Scots) and Bi-cultural, (Peru, Cyprus, France, Mexico, Native American)
