Earthy? How about “eau de farmyard?” But that’s not a bad thing. The aroma sort of put me off, but if you hold your breath when you sip, the flavor itself is just nice and dark. A dig-in-the-flowerbed kind of dark.

This aroma is what scares me off of Pu-erh’s altogether. I still can’t get past my hayfield greens, so I’m way far from trying these. Glad the taste is dark and good though!

Glad I experimented; probably won’t repeat that one.

I find the aroma to be one of the best parts of this tea. This explains why my friends were so put off when I brewed some for them.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
