20 Tasting Notes
I was advised not to drink green (or raw puerh) as it gets astringent real fast. However, the puerh supplier for Numi (Mrs. Du) in Yunnan province sent us a little taste of her personal green puerh – and it’s pretty unreal. Smells like dried fruit, tastes like clean clean clean clean.
I dig this. Normally when I have a hot oolong, I don’t go for amber colored ones. But this one is super toasty and delicious chilled. It’s that one canned beverage vice that I have that can’t be replaced with anything else. They know how to steep – and I am stoked that it is unsweetened. If you ever find me in whole foods (I hate shopping), I probably have at least 4 cans of this and 22 oz. hoppy beer.
Sometimes Green Puerh can be a bit acidic for me, but this blend is awesome! It’s smooth, floral, and surprisingly easy on the stomach. If you’re in Oakland, try some @ NUMI – 2230 Livingston St.
Sweeter and jasmine-y-er than I expected. Come to Numi Tea in Oakland as they have a half-off sale on flowering tea! Awesome!
Treat it like a green tea. Steep it short. Delicious!
Woof! Old puerh is crazy!
Whew! Satisfying, light, dessert-y. Numi’s Chocolate Puerh is a pleasant surprise. Sipping it as I infuse a cream pie with it. Amazing stuff. Real cacao and a little orange peel for a nice blend.
Kinda indifferent to this tea. It smells good, and I want to like it. But, I just don’t. It’s not exactly a waste of water like some decaf teas, but it should be put into an eye-pillow instead of a tea bag.
Heal the belly dangit.
