Have introduced guys at work to Sheng Pu’erh with this tea. Big hit. An affordable and convenient way to get people to try Sheng.
iTea Quality Tea
Drinking a cup while working on my thesis. There’s a definite taste of dried fruit to this tea, and it’s a lighter tea, which makes it perfect for the afternoon.
Purim was celebrated in schools and kindergartens across the country today, so it was a lot of fun to walk around town and see all the costumes. My cat is glued to the window, watching laughing kids rush to parties or play outside.
Backlogging from yesterday. I stumbled upon this relatively new player in the (tiny) Israeli tea market a few weeks ago, and this is the first tea that I’ve tasted from them.
The tea comes in an attractive thick cardboard box, and an attractive price, but very little information about its origin or age. iTea is merely an importer of the tea, which they say come from “Wuzhou Tea Factory, China” (never heard of them, and they don’t appear to exist online, but if I knew Chinese I could decipher what’s written on the packages perhaps and find out more about them), so I wasn’t expecting much at all – especially at this price.
Boy was I surprised!
First of all, the tea is very well packed – each tiny toucha is sealed in a nice foil-like bag, and then in a cotton paper wrapper. The leaves on each toucha are large, and whole, and telling by colour – rather on the young side of Sheng Puerh. They open up to large, beautiful whole leaves, and produce a very sweet, very refreshing tea, with slight hints of roasted green beans. A wonderful experience for the price – most definitely will buy more.
A tea to relax with at the end of a busy tea, whilst basking in the setting sun’s rays.
