had another one of these today. probably globe-amaranth one. it was slightly better than the one from 2 days ago. i managed to drink 2 cups. not with much enthusiasm tho. it still has that weird slightly unpleasant smell and taste. starting to think that’s just how pu-ehr tastes. this one wasn’t sweet at all. just the opposite – it was quite bitter. but bitter proved to be more drinkable for me this time. weirdly…
slightly higher rating but still not near to the smiling face…
have to try to air the samples out a bit. maybe it will then have less of that weird taste…

Bio

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
