From Tealish

A variety of Chinese Yunnan, Pu-erh is an aged tea praised for its medicinal properties. This Pu-Erh is medium bodied and in loose leaf form, with the typical “earthy” flavour and a slight floral aroma. Good for multiple infusions.

Oh wow, this was SOOOO GOOOOD!!!
I stopped in at my docs today, and since I was in the area (for once, when they are open!) I dropped in to exchange some tea and grab a cuppa.
Going through all the options, I was in one of those super indecisive moods where I hrmm and huhhh through virtually every option and then torture the staff while I do it all over again. This, after I’d done virtually the same whilst purchasing a pair of spring boots… errnoooo I did not buy another pair of brown boots, said the girl with two pairs already in her closet… heh. Hey to be fair, I really need a pair to get me through the spring, since my other ones are either insanely high heeled or ultra warm for the winter. and I hate wearing nylon socks, they never look right with “work shoes”… so boots are really my only alternative until it gets warm enough to wear sandals.
Anyhow, onto the tea. The girl at the shop was so patient, pulling down all the teas I wanted to try. Of course my mind was made up when saw their only pu’erh, and I asked her if they can add ginger to the cup. Thankfully, she said yes! yay! It was amaaaazing. No fishiness at all. The texture was a little thick, and creamy like… chocolate milk, except without any of the graininess. In fact, it reminded me of cocoa in some ways, or even a mild chicory sans the abrasive factor.
However, it wasn’t as potent as the DT version, which I didn’t mind because it’s not like I was at work, nor am I deathly ill…
Oh and did I mention that the girl who served me (I’d mention her name but that would be an invasion of her privacy, I think) gave me the cup on the house?!? for my troubles with the tea I came to exchange. AND some free samples. Now THAT is customer service folks :)

Wow! Sounds like you bumped into tea heaven!

Indigobloom

No kidding Bonnie!! YUM!!!! I think Pu’erh has become my favourite tea category now :)

Tommy the Toad

Pu-erh is awesomeness!!

Bonnie

Right now I know so little that I’m staying with 2 buckets. I have my Teaverve Puerh (2) and my Verdant Puer (2). Then, I have my other flavored Puerh’s that remind me of having a coffee blended drink if you know what I mean. I have some other Puerhs but they have proven to be lesser quality so I pulled back a bit and don’t want to go that route. I like the good stuff. I’d like to take a puerh class in Boulder (they have them there just an hour away).

Tommy the Toad

I’d love to take a puerh class i think that would be great, i have puerhs that i havent even tried yet. Bonnie you have puerhs you dont care much for? maybe you’d like to swap for something else? let me know. i like most puerhs even fishy ones.

Indigobloom

A Pu-erh class?? wow, that sounds like fun!
They have tea classes at a college in the city here but I don’t think there is one that’s all Pu-erh.
As for me, I can’t stand the really fishy or bitter ones. The better quality though, makes me swoon…

Bonnie

Well, in July there’s a Tea Festival in Boulder, which is why there are a few fantastic A+ tea houses there and one in particular has tea classes (Ku Cha Tea house if you wanted to look it up). Can’t wait to go. I’m trying to get my local tea shop to have a class also. They do have tasting evenings for other tea’s and blend their own which is fantastic. Hope they go online soon.

Indigobloom

mmmmmm. Maybe I should move to Colorado :P

Indigobloom

Bonnie, when I get my stash organized… we need to set up a swap!!! :)

Bonnie

Yeh everybody move to Colorado and then retire and then drink tea all day and teach these people here about it. (Ya’ll probably think we have a lot of snow…hee hee but we don’t except up in the higher elevations! What we have is a LOT OF SUNSHINE! It hasn’t rained since last Sept.)

Indigobloom

right on!!! I could so go for some sunshine. Be there in an hour! LOL

Bonnie

Tea’s on!

Indigobloom

ahhh I can just hear the kettle whistling sighs

I’m trying this tea again today…

Still has that odd taste that I’m not quite sure how to describe. My friend described it as “fishy”, so take that as you will. Essentially, it is a slight bit easier to drink than last time, but I still had to lower the rating a bit because I think I gave it too generous of a rating last time. At least it’s slightly more drinkable this time around, but I don’t get any enjoyment out of it like I do with my Samovar teas…

Is Samovar really that untouchable?

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

Maybe you’d prefer the method Carolyn suggests: 1g of leaf per oz of water, pour boiling (or almost boiling) water over the leaves and let steep for 15 sec. Decant and throw away this steep. Boil more water and steep for 20 sec. This is your 1st drinkable steep. Continue steeping for 20 sec til you find the cuppa too weak for your taste then increase by 10 sec.

Raffi

I do normally follow a similar set of steps, but I think the fundamental problem here is that I dislike the taste of the leaves. I’m following the same procedures that I would when I steep Maiden’s Ecstasy so I’m fairly certain that this simply isn’t to my liking… Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Sherubtse

I have some of this tea on hand, and will start on it next week. It will be interesting to see what it tastes like, in light of your recent reviews.

Best wishes,
Sherubtse
