Thank you The DJBooth for swapping this with me!

When I first looked at the dry leaves, I couldn’t tell what it was. Was it oolong? black? pu-erh? The leaves were wavy and dark brown/black. I couldn’t smell anything… perhaps my nose wasn’t working this morning ?? Anyhow, I wasn’t sure how to brew it up either, so I steeped it for 2 minutes Western style.

Upon sniffing the murky dark brown/black liquor, I knew there was Pu Erh in there! It was earthy, sweet, malty, and roasty. It was a dark tea! Delicious! I took a sip, and there was no bitterness! I was happy. This is a good tea. I read the description after and saw that it is a blended tea. I don’t know which Black Tea this is mixed with, but it is good. There was a tiny hint of smokiness. I added some sugar and milk just to try it out that way, and it was delicious! Lovely tea.

I finished this tea up today as well. Woo I’m on a roll. I have teas lined up for later as well. This tea is good as always. I brewed this up Western style, but this tea tastes a lot better brewed in a small gaiwan or small vessel. Delicious! This doesn’t have the powdered milk smell or taste to it, which is great! Lovely tea. :)

I enjoyed my 2 week vacation, but now that I started working, I realized that I drink far less tea than usual. This tea was great for tonight. It was fruity and light. Just what I needed before I go to sleep tonight.

I finished this tea up today. My husband and I shared this tea. It was so good! I am going to try to drink up all the teas that are almost finished so I can open more in my tea cupboard.

It is like ginger soda. So good and sweet! :) I’m glad I got to try this.

I made this for my husband this morning. For some reason, I really try to LOVE Yunnan teas, but I gotta be real… I’m just not that into Yunnan. So my husband got this tea and finished it off. He loves the smokey and strong black teas, like Lapsang Souchongs and such. I added some milk and sugar to this, as per his request. I stole a sip and realized it tastes great with milk and sugar!
