From Nothing But Tea

Green Pu Erh leaves are pressed into small individually wrapped bowls each making a cup of green Pu Erh tea. Pu Erh can be stored and left to mature over long periods of time. These Toucha are perfect for travelling or days away, a more convenient way of enjoying the health benefits of this unique tea. This green version is milder than the black Pu Erh and has a quite refreshing taste.

My third pu-erh from Angrboda! This one is different in two ways: it’s a green tea in type and it’s a toucha in shape.

The toucha part was really fun, actually, watching it slowly unravel. (Sadly, I didn’t get any pictures.) And it takes the guesswork out of how much tea to add!

Weirdly, this green pu-erh tasted much more like black tea than the regular pu-erh did! It was a nice sort of bracing black tea, like an Assam, maybe. Then I think I oversteeped it and it became dangerously bitter until I added a lump of sugar.

Enjoyable! I think I still like that very first pu-erh best so far, though….

Cofftea

Cait, excuse my confusion, but how can a tea be both a pu erh and a green tea at the same time…? Do you mean its a green (also called raw or sheng) pu erh?

Cait

I think that’s what I mean! I’m still figuring out the pu-erh (does it have a hyphen?) terminology.

Cofftea

Eh. There are different ways to pronounce it so I’m not surprised there are different ways to spell (or punctuate) it.

Angrboda

cofftea, no clue. thjat’s what the company called it. i don’t really get the dinstinctions between piu-erh types, but from what i gather i think maybe they just made the pu-erhj based on a green tea,

caitm, i’m so glad yoiu liked thjis one. iw wasn’t really a fan so i have ti admit i took yuor pu-erh sampling reqiuest as an opportinuty to get rid of it,.

(argh stupid finger-! i hioe you can bioth decipher this!)

The last untried tea from the pu-erh sampler. I wasn’t too impressed with the loose green pu-erh, so really I’m just hoping that by being pressed into touchas this will be somehow different and better.

The smell when I poured it into the cup wasn’t really too assuring. Sweet and extremely butter-y. Little bit salty too. In the cup where the liquid is at rest, there is the well-known pu-erh smell too, but at this point I still have the vast amounts of melted butter fresh in my memory and it comes across as too little too late.

This is salty. It reminds me a bit of TeaSpring’s Long Jing, which I don’t think I’ve actually posted about yet. I think I’ve got notes for that one in my Backlog Later files. I didn’t care much for that one either, as I recall, due to the amounts of salted butter notes in it. I wonder if this stuff might be based on Long Jing, or a Long Jing type tea.

I can pick up a little of the characteristic pu-erh earthiness, but again, it’s really just too little too late.

I have a strong suspicion that whoever invented this type of tea did not have the likes of me in mind at the time. I can drink this, but I’d sort of prefer not to. I’ll probably finish off the samples just to be rid of them because I don’t like throwing stuff out unless I really seriously didn’t like it, but it’s definitely not something I’d purchase another time.

Give me a proper ordinary pu-erh anytime.
