Apologies for the link, but I feel wikipedia could do a better job explaining it. The direct translation means “to drink tea.”

OMG YES Ricky! Yes! m happy you liked it! This is awesome. We will eventually have to discuss everything. How cute was the sample box? And all the little baggies? :D

P.S. If you want my e-mail ever to chat it up, lemme know!

Ricky

We need a Golden Moon Tea discussion thread or something for all the members who purchased the sampler. I might really to have to order a few more and give it out as gifts seeing as the presentation ( “cute” basket ll email you with my real address afterward.

I might really to have to order a few more and give it out as gifts seeing as the presentation ( “cute” basket = your words not mine :D) was so nice. As for the bags, little? They were huge! The size of two tea bags, they were like 1″×6″ (rough estimates). I had a hard time tearing it open, they didn’t have a little tear me thing anywhere. Inside was just enough tea for one cup =(.

As for my email. Seeing as this is a public comment, here’s a junk / temporary email address ( [email protected] ). I’ll email you with my real address afterward.

My original comment was longer, but I can’t recall everything.

Ricky, I cut mine open with scissors. :) My Organic Green had enough for two cups, it seemed like. Although I could be entirely wrong (I measured out one heaping teaspoon and there was enough for another teaspoon the same size).

I’ll be e-mailing you shortly!

Ricky

Sorry, the bug was that my comment was cut off between ( “cute” basket & ll email.

STOP TORTURING ME!!!! I WANT MY SAMPLER!!!!

Ricky

LOL, your missing out on our tea discussion. We’re starting without you.

I’m trying to consider it like a movie trailer. Coming soon to a teapot near you!

As a lifelong Pu-erh drinker, can you recommend a good one to start with? Would it be better to try something flavored or something straight up? I was looking at Rishi’s Blood Orange Pu-erh.

Cofftea

I think chocolate would be the ONLY way you’d get me to try it again:)

Ricky

Well, the ones they serve at restaurants are watered down, that might be why I got use to it. I love this one, but it might be a bit strong from people starting. I would try it with a flavor, if you like blood orange by all means. The flavor definitely knocks off some of the pu-erh taste. GM has a pu-erh chai and I couldn’t really taste the pu-erh that much.
