I can’t pronounce the name of this tea for the life of me, but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying it! Steeped for an extra minute today, and I’m not sure if it unlocked an extra something special or what, but it was delicious! Smokey tones, a rich, dark color, and an earthy/smokey aroma combine to form a potent black tea that can easily be enjoyed by itself on a cold, damp morning.

Pooh Errr Don-tay:) I’m just now getting back into pu erh’s after trying this when I knew absolutely nothing about tea. I thought it was absolutely vile the 1st time so I pray this time is different. Do you rinse it 1st?

@Cofftea – I didn’t rinse it. Are you supposed to? I like strong teas, and especially smokey teas, so this one was right in my sweet spot. That said, I can see how people wouldn’t necessarily like it, so it’s going to be a hit or miss type tea. I’d give it a second chance though, because you never know what your refined palate is going to enjoy! ;)

Yep Carolyn suggested I rinse. There are a few Pu Erh threads here you might enjoy.
