This was my first experience with Pu’erh and I can’t really say that I liked it very much. The tea smelled much like grassy hay when I smelled it dry. The instruction said boiling water from 3-5 minutes, so I tried 4. The tea had an earthy smell and taste, much like muddy water. The tea was amber in hue and has no bitter taste at all. I don’t give up easily and I have an ounce of tea so I will keep trying other temps and steep times. If anyone has any ideas, please leave me a comment.
The USDA Certified Organic leaf Pu’erh tea has the body and character of black tea but its the medicinal properties that are thought to be present that set it apart.
In China this tasty tea has long been used as a powerful digestive aid and natural detoxifier. But even more remarkable is the suggested cholesterol lowering benefits that have been experienced by so many.
