drank Naked Pu-erh by Tealux
2221 tasting notes

Had this with some cinnamon sticks broken into the pot this morning.

I forgot to rinse, but it was still delicious. This is a really good intro tea, as long as you rinse! Otherwise it does smell a little footy/fishy.

My first deliberate foray into puerh! And it tastes a lot like the one my favourite chinese restaurant serves (only theirs is super watered down…).

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

You are a pu head in the making.. ;)

agree ;)

This was one of the first teas I bought online ~2 years ago. And o dreamt last night that my mom got me the swirly black and white pot from YS and I was so sad because it’s not as tiny as I wanted. Of course I also dreamed we got it at a hiking shop and that Vancouver island = Swiss alps, so…

Dexter

I too love a little cinnamon stick in with pu’erh.
LOL if you are dreaming about pots being the wrong size – then we need to stop looking at them :))

OMGsrsly

Lol. Yeah that was kinda funny. I was more concerned with the size of the mountains though.

OMGsrsly

I think I might get this one, even though the shape isn’t perfect and it has no spots…

That’s nice – when you sign up for an account and join their news letter you get points. I was able to use those points on my first purchase – so you should be able to get a couple dollars off that. :))

Dexter

I did toss a couple of tea samples from them into you box….

OMGsrsly

Oh, cool! Mostly it depends on how impatient I get. Birthday order from YS and waiting for shipping, or something soon? :) Hard to say.

Dexter

IMHO – I still think he perfect one is out there. I think you try to be a bit patient…. maybe email YS and see if they have anything that’s not on the website…

OMGsrsly

Oh yeah, I was going to do that. I look forward to the box! So many new things to try.

boychik

im concerned with the clay quality of this pot. its not yixing

OMGsrsly

Haha, no it’s not yixing. It’s also not the “perfect” pot for me. I want spherical or egg shaped, with a tiny spout, and speckles, about 100ml. You know, just a teensy bit specific. Dexter and I searched and searched last night. Most of the spherical speckled pots are 170cc+.

I mostly drink black tea, with some floral oolongs or puerhs thrown in for variety.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
