I have never seen braided tea before. This is cool even if just for the weirdness factor. The fact that it tastes very nice is also a huge bonus. I used 3 braids for 10 oz. Very clean and crisp. To me there is a light metallic (but pleasant) taste. The other reviewers saw this as citrus. Maybe that is because they used a gaiwan. Slightly creamy. Slightly slick. My favorite part is how it rumbles in my belly. Possibly the best rumbler I have had. Probably because it is attacking the bologna sandwich I had a while ago.

This is very drinkable. It has no bitterness, no barnyard, and no fishiness. This is currently listed for $8.99/50g or $10.99/100g with free shipping. If you even sort of like sheng, this is worth a try even if just for the weirdness factor.

One year ago today I walked out of the workplace for the last time with tools in hand after being downsized. 3 friends also were laid off. One decided to just retire. The other two now have better jobs in the industry working for other companies. I have only occasional residual anger and hurt. As it turns out they did me a huge favor. This year I had to face though my mind is still fairly sharp, physically I can no longer keep up with an 8 hour or longer day. Being disabled is not fun and you often face judgment from healthy people who don’t understand. I’ll gladly go to work in any one’s place on Monday if they trade me bodies for the day. They just think they are glad to see 4:00 now. Anyway thank you Steepsterites for allowing me to vent on occasion so my wife doesn’t have to listen to it.

Like Pooh Bear, we get rumbly in our tumbly! Maybe the puerh was actually HAVING a rumble with that bologna sandwich. I can see it now, each one tossing a switchblade back and forth…

Time and perspective do smooth out the rough edges eventually. Hope yours are all sanded down real soon.

Separately, rolled and coiled and braided teas are absolutely fascinating—-wouldn’t it be fun to watch the preparation process?

There used to be a YouTube video of dragon pearls being rolled. It is a miracle we don’t pay more when you see them hand rolling the pearls individually,
