WOW! I’m speechless on this tea! This is my very first Pu-erh experience and honestly I have been intentionally avoiding this tea for some time now… something about being “aged in a cave” and the word “fermented” had me pretty freaked out. Anyways, the aroma of this tea is intoxicating, I’ve smelled this smell somewhere before but for the life of me I can not place it nor can I describe it. It is pungent, musky, strong and… I LOVE IT! This may sound very odd, but it tastes like a very good piece of earthy tree bark with some really rich soil covering it… not that I know what that tastes like, but it is what I think of while I am sipping on this treasure. Hmmm I think I need to take a moment and zen out while I finish my cup! I’m going to place an order for this right after I get done zenning out with my new treasure :-D

Bio

I am a tea enthusiast who is always looking to try a new tea, but my all time favorite is jasmine pearls…or anything with jasmine in it really. I also am a sushi fanatic and simply can’t live without it. Outside of my fanatasy world of all things tea and sushi I am an executive assistant, mother of 2 and personal taxi/maid and chef service for my little family.

But back to the tea!

I love Jasmine Pearls, just about any White Tea and then we have Pu-erh coming in last as my top three.

However, I still enjoy a good Earl Grey tea, the more bergamot the better! I have a fond place in my heart for Matcha, especially iced Matcha Lattes. Flavored green teas are always fun, but I tend to stay away from the overly grassy tasting ones… they always remind me of a wheatgrass shot!

It takes a special black tea to really win me over, for me I find that they all taste too much alike or tend to be too bitter at times; I think I am more so bored with them.

Oolongs are fairly new to me and I am finding that these are really good and they will probably end up making it as one of my top contenders!

Pu-erh I have yet to try; I am very curious, but a bit scared to try it… something about being aged in a cave just frightens me a bit, but I would like to try one in the very near future :-) Update – I have tried a few pu-erhs and I can’t get enough of them! While they are definitely an acquired taste they are lovely! This has now taken over rooibos in my top 3 teas of choice!
