I tried another cup of this tea. This time I put milk in it right away. I think the taste that they are describing as “malty” is having my brain translate it to “hay”. This isn’t my favorite tea by a long shot, but it still tastes pretty good. I think unflavored pu-erh might be an acquired taste and my fiance agrees (as he eyes his stash of the emporeror and hopes I don’t drink it all).

I think I might want to find and try the chocolate one of this for myself and some other flavored ones for my fiance. He will like them even if I end up not liking them. But this is a very good introduction to pu-erh and I still want to try more.

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
