I was surprised to find out from my neighbor that our Vitamin Shop carries Numi and Rishi tea. I thought I had to drive an hour and a half to get it! He gave me a box of this tea today.

The tasting conditions were not perfect. I was absolutely starving and my friend had come over to do yoga. She loves puerh, so I made a pot. So there was talking and starving going on. I used three teabags for a 22 ounce Beehouse pot and man was it ever dark! It was also very good. This was rich and leathery. I resteeped and made a second pot and it was a little milder, almost as dark, but every bit as good, maybe better.

My neighbor has never tried puerh. I am really interested in seeing his reaction since he has liked the greens I have taken him.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about eight years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
