Really enjoying this chamomile! It has an extra… FRESHNESS I guess that I obviously never experienced with my past bagged chamomiles. It’s really cool to see the full flowers too, what a cute tea. Can tea be cute? WELL IT IS NOW.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

MY FIRST PU ERH YEAHHH! This one was also quite a bit smokey I guess? NOT AS MUCH as the lapsang but still very earthy and smooth! It’s another one I’d like to try again sometime; in fact I’d really like to get a better taste of pu erh in general. ANYBODY HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS?

I began reading some reviews by looking at the puerh list under the tea’s tab above and the most popular ones. I picked some to try. That was my method (also certain people and companies were favorites). Ask for samples too.

WOW this tea was unlike anything I have ever had before! QUITE AN EXPERIENCE! I always considered things like ASSAM to be kinda malty and smokey but WOW THIS. THIS is what smokey tea really is. It was like drinking a campfire. Or some kinda fresh jerky, without the meat. REALLY UNIQUE but in the end… I THINK I LIKED IT!? I definitely want to try something like this again!

Again, some LS’s are harsh and some sweet and smooth. Try different ones when you can.

wish i had a punny tea name

My sample of this is gone now oh nooo! Still not sure I liked it enough to actually buy it though. But is definitely good and definitely grew on me! A+ experience.

SUPER CASUAL TEA AFICIONADO!
my tastes are not refined.

i tend to steep teas too long and give a lot of high ratings and get ridiculously excited over things; i apologize for my excessive use of caps but TEA IS EXCITING okay!

greens & oolongs are my favorite!
also like sweet black teas!
and occasional light fruity teas!

i’d love to do a tea trade with you!
