I hate it when life gets in the way of tea drinking, and I have a lot to catch up on…my own tea purchases, as well as from some amazing swaps.

While this tea is called a pu’erh, it is more reminiscent of a white tea. The taste reminds me of White Peony. I don’t mind. I like white, and go to it when I don’t want heavy or strong flavour.

On opening the bag, the dry scent is fresh. Brewed, the taste is light, fresh and slightly grassy. Not bad, but since there are so many other tea’s to try, I wouldn’t find this one a mandatory staple.

i agree with your assessment of this one and will add that it’s the kindof tea i’d go to when i’m feeling off and don’t want something robust. i do miss the normal nuttiness of puerh, though.

I agree, it doesn’t have that earthy, nuttiness normally associated with pu’erhs.

Hmmmmm interesting, this is on my Tealux wish list. I’ve had another tea that was what I thought of as a white pu’erh, but it had some of the pu’erh earthiness to it – subtle but it was there. I thought this would be similar.

i’ll share some with you, if you like Dexter3659.

Thanks James, really appreciate it but I’m going to place a Tealux order soon (this weekend – take advantage of the sale?) and I’ll just get a sample size of it. Love that Tealux has several different size options. Thanks anyway!!
I’m in the process of restocking my cupboard, wouldn’t be much fun choosing something to swap for right now, hit me up again sometime when I have lots of options for you. :))

Saw the sale…debating…I know I shouldn’t…

OH I KNOW I SHOULDN’T!!!! I have SIX packages in the mail heading my way (swaps and orders) – have been out of control. Then part of me thinks, you’ve blown the budget already, what’s one more order. They also have a mug I really want….. Still thinking about it, but I know I will place an order soon.
