Holy bitter tea, Batman! This tea isn’t just bitter…it’s bidd-ah! Yikes! (And I drink my coffee black.)

The description says that the liquor should be “brilliant reddish brown”, but I’m getting opaque dark brown. Unless I hold it up to a light, it looks like a cup of black coffee…if not darker. The tea smells like most pu-erhs in my book. Sharp smoke with a thought of barnyard. Nothing fishy, thank goodness. The taste progression goes a little something like this: Bitter. Smoky. Barnyard…and finishes bitter and earthy. I also pick up some dark tobacco hints. Like a good maduro cigar before it is lit. Not bad for a pu-erh, but still not a tea that I’m in love with. This particular pu-erh tastes a little thin to me. Perhaps I’ve grown too accustomed to chewy, bake-y teas. I’m not appalled, so I guess this can be seen as progress as my venture into the pu-erh world continues.

Thank you SoccerMom for your generous samples. I will be trying this again.

This pu er reminds me of what drinking a cup of folgers coffee might be like. I don’t drink coffee so I can’t say that with 100 percent certainty but it’s what I would imagine it to be like. It steep light amber and then gets magically darker and darker till it becomes black blacker than any black tea I’ve ever had it could be mistaken for a cup of coffee.
It smells like it is going to be hard to get down in terms of it has a bitter smell to it not fishy like some pu erhs I drink. It is fishy on the rinse though, It has a smoky almost a bit of a tobacco/nicotine smell to it but the taste is not so bad not something I would ever crave like my beloved oolongs but it is definently an appetite suppressant when I drink a glass of this I’m not hungry for a couple hours.
A family friend brought this from China he lost 80lbs last time I saw him after drinking this tea for 6 months he says he’s just not hungry when he drinks a couple cups of pu erh a day. While I don’t need to lose 80 lbs I thought if I could lose 5 or 10 lbs drinking tea why not.
So while it is not a tea I would recommend it makes me interested in trying more pu erh until I find the right one (or two or three) to suit my palate.

I use coffee-ish to describe the liquor of black teas often, but cooked pu erhs are above and beyond that IMO. I call that “cola-ish”.:)

Any tea will fill you up and, if it has caffeine, will speed up your metabolism- not just this pu erh or even just pu erhs in general. So drink whatever you like:)

SoccerMom

Thanks for giving me my tea drinking freedom and I’m not being sarcastic! Just glad I don’t have to force drink my way through this pot!

SoccerMom

I think I’ll order some samovar maiden’s ecstasy and place an order for Teavana strawberry slender. I can’t go back to Teavana that lady is to aggressive in her sales tactics and I end up with stuff I don’t like!

Most true teas have all same health benefits, but I am finding that Pu Erh helps metabolize fatty acids and oily foods, is believed to reduce cholesterol, and is also cleansing and detoxifying to the bloodstream. These benefits seem to be Pu Erh specific. But keep trying, you may find a Pu Erh you love! I never thought I would.
