I picked up this tea in the bulk dry goods section of our quasi-local (HEB) “Central Market” this past Sunday. It has become impossible to get a parking place at the Whole Foods after church on Sundays, so I have begun to drive the extra 10 blocks or so to the Central Market. If you’re already 10 miles from home, what’s another 10 blocks. I was shocked, though, because on Saturdays, you can’t get near Central Market with love, money, blood or magicks. But Sundays are quite pleasant as it turns out.
This is a… strange tea. I had it once, yesterday, and I’m going to need to have it a few more times to make up my mind about it.
It is almost sweet, and yet it is not treated with anything. And generally, I don’t like sweet.
However, if you are big into pu-erh, I highly recommend trying one of the many Yunnan Gold teas on the market just to give you a stronger appreciation for what’s been done to those leaves to change them from Gold into pu-erh.
I’m slowly letting my overall collection dwindle so that I can justify a big order from a premium site, soon. Stay tuned.
