I was craving something heavier and a bit savory today as the weather is starting to get cooler here. I bumped around the kitchen all morning looking for the perfect snack and just realized that what I really wanted was this deep, rich tea. This one has become my favorite – I love everything about it.

I’m not sure the pu-erh taste comes out like it’s supposed to. I had the chance to visit a tea shop in Georgia recently that carried a straight pu-erh, and I noticed it had a fishiness to it that others here have commented on. I don’t get that with the Strawberry Slender at all. It really just tastes like a black tea to me. And I’m okay with that.

175 °F / 79 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Good puerh, like that sold by Mandala and Teavivre, shouldn’t have that fishy smell. I had some cheap puerh from another company that had to be aired out for hours or even days to get rid of that nasty smell!

Good to know! I was actually thinking the exact opposite – that the fishier the tea, the better the quality. I’m so glad to know I was wrong! I’ll definitely look up Mandala and Teavivre. I’m still pretty new to tea and haven’t tried a lot of different varieties so I appreciate the recommendations!
