A review of Basil Mint Pu-erh by Numi Organic Tea

Company: Numi Organic Tea
Tea Name: Basil Mint Pu-erh
Tea Type/Varietal: pu-erh
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: darken amber
Leaf Characteristics: Tea bag when steeped is pungently strong. That pew-eh, earthy dampness aroma permeates.

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

I am continuing with my Numi Organic Sampler pack and this time the tea is Basil Mint Pu-erh. I opened the tea package and remove the bag and put this in my cup; adding the cold water to the tea, I put in the microwave for a few minutes and leaving it to steep until very dark.

Tea smells strongly of dampness and moisture with hints of the mint coming through mildly. This tea has great herbal aroma with a smooth flavoring. If you like pu-erh tea in its traditional form (heady moisture/dampness smell) than this is the tea for you. The mint is an adage as it soothes and comforts the digestive with an overall calming effect.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 4 minutes

I fixed another cup of this tea, using same tea bag with a steep time of five minutes and the water is very hot. Tea’s aroma continues to be that heady/heavy damp wetness from stock piling of moisture; tea is a darken amber and I find I like this color as it means that the is malty and smooth. So I take sips after sips of this tea reveling in the ancient mysteries that is offered.

I like this Basil Mint Tea quite a bit. The mint is not overly done; it leaves the pu-erh as it should be; the mint is just around for a soothing cup of pu-erh tea.

This sounds nice. I’ve seen a place in the city where I live that has a selection of Numi teas. I think I’ll keep an eye on if they have this one too.

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.
