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.
20 Tasting Notes
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.

Woof. Endless cup.
Each steeping is different. We got some serious cinnamon scent/flavor on the first 45 second steeping.
Booyah to the short summer steeps. Bottle of wine, rockabilly wedding, polyrhythmic dreams and long daylight. Mao Feng is kinda nice in the afternoon when the fleeting chaos of summer ensues.
Just drank this at Samovar on Thursday. Not bad! I’m curious about the blood orange pu-erh. This was surprisingly strong at short 30 second steepings.
Dank! Augment it with juice or more tea or a friend.
Sweatin’ out the baddies.
No messing around. Oversteep this and die. I have a problem with ignoring my darjeeling while I steep it, don’t know why. Now, I am paying close close attention as it yields some serious power-tonic.
Elevate yourself, start with a one minute steeping.
You can’t go wrong with the Emperor.
