First, I give you: http://whosthecutest.com/

Ok. This was sitting there staring at me for the past nearly 2 months now and I wanted to try it. I gave it a rinse first and then I’m pretty much just steeping this as: fill with water, put lid on, it steeps until I get myself together and pour it into the teacup.

I would guess that’s 5-10 seconds. And dang this tea gets dark in those few seconds.

1st steep: This is very, very, very much like a forest. There’s a little bit of ginger in there. Mostly though it is very woody, I taste cedar, definitely.

2nd steep: Still woody, but not as strongly. It has a bit more of a spicy bite to it.

3rd steep: it’s getting a little creamy but it’s reminding me of the first steep

4th steep: still waiting for the caramel, but I don’t think I can drink anymore right now haha

This sounds so tasty! I’ve really been wanting to get into pu-erhs but the last thing I need is an entirely new tea genre to spend money on…

Puerh is pretty inexpensive compared to other tea. You can get some good Puerh for as low as $8 for 100 grams which lasts quite awhile (an example is 2009 red aura menghai puerh whic is very tasty and smooth). Mrmopar knows about puerh and I know of some good buys too. There’s a big variety, flavored puerh tuocha’s (orange, honeysuckle, and so on). Quality is always important to me but taste does not equal expensive.
