A review: Pu-erh Premium Loose Tea by Stash Tea

I wanted to give this pu-erh another try since I do not like it as other pu-erh. It does not excite me.

Adding one teaspoon of loose tea to my cup and I poured hot water over the leaves; leaving to steep for 3 minutes with a lid on. I remove the lid after the usual time and began to inhale the aroma and yes there is that raw, earthiness in the air.

This pu-erh has a damp smell to it, the likes one finds when gardening; moist soil. I do not mind the smell; actually it is sort of nice. I tend to want to be one with nature and since I am not a gardener this tea would do to getting me close enough to the garden with none of the enduring labor. This is quite a stretch on my part in depicting this tea’s character and its effect on me.

Still unimpressed!

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
