This is my first tasting note!
I really enjoy this tea. It is light, refreshing and tastes so natural.
For me the water does not have to be boiling hot for this tea to steep well and steeping time just between 3-5 mins it makes a great on the go tea. This is my morning college classes kind of tea and when the weather is cold it gives this hot cup of tea just that little extra comforting feel.

I love this stuff … when I’m sick, I add about half a packet to a cup of black tea (or any kind of tea really, because I don’t end up tasting much of the tea) and it works wonders on a sore throat.

Kasumi no Chajin

My work friend loves this. I don’t think it has a whole lot of flavor…until you oversteep it, in which case it gets kind of bitter and unpalatable.

I added this tea to the Steepster database. My local Asian market has this Organic version and the Premium Version. The organic version was priced at one dollar more, and has the USDA Organic logo on the package. I bought this after reading the review of the Premium one here on Steepster.

5/15/2013 – Found out I’m not much of a fan of oolongs, so It’s sitting on my tea shelf for awhile longer.

10/7/12 – Bought today at local Asian Supermarket – The one that sell frog legs, for 3.99. I know there are some Pu-erh lovers out there, and I’m gonna start with the bagged one before I start importing kilos like Scarface. I looked it up on Amazon and I think I did good. This local Asian supermarket by me has a whole isle devoted to tea so why not try them all out?

12/6/12 – This has been my daily Pu-erh drinker for now and I’m trying to get through the 100 tea bags. Sometimes I use two tea bags. As always, the taste reminds me of “dirt”.

Do you know those pregnant women who eat “pica” (nonfood items) like soap, detergent, and crayons? Well, as a man in midlife, we go through manopause, and crave Pu-Erh because is tastes like dirt/pica (weird non food item)

Sometimes tea tastes like dirt. It’s ok.
I heard there’s a Crayon/Clay flavored tea coming out for pregnant women!

12/24/13 – Sitting on my shelf at home, I’ll have to drink this up before I hit Kam Man Food Inc at 511 Old Post Rd Edison, NJ 08817 for more Pu-Erh tea.

Mmmmm… This is definitely one to remember if you have a sore throat, stomachache, cold, or on freezing nights. The honey, the ginger, a steaming cup – warms you up instantly! For those not accustomed to the taste of ginger, or don’t like strong ginger drinks, this is not for you. The ginger is incredibly distinct, and can be a little overpowering, but the sweetness of the honey and sugar take the bite off it, turning it into a drink that’s sweet, savory, and spicy.

I really like this one! Usually I have to add a bit of sweetener to any cup of tea, but this one is just fine by itself. Very mild, perfect for anyone who says they “don’t like tea.” :)

I brought some of this to the dialysis clinic with me today, Im actualy thinking about just bringing my electric kettle and small steeper up here with us cuz i have to sit in here for like 4 or 5 hours.

K S

do they still make those 2-cup hot pots like we all used at college back in the day? That and a Finum basket would work great I would think.

Tommy the Toad

Yep, thats pretty much what I have but mines 2 quarts and a ceramic infuser cup thingie that would be good for bringing up here, I think I will bring it with me on friday, it would make things alot better here.
