I am enjoying a second steep of this tea now, if rolling around on the sofa going “nomnomnom” is enjoying, and it occurs to me that I really truly do not believe this is a Puerh tea. Now, it might be Pu Er, as in, it was purchased in the tea trading town in Yunnan Province, China called Puerh, but I am convinced this is a Golden Mudan just like the one sold by Harney and Sons years ago. The company has this listed under both Pu Er tea and Black Tea headings. I think it belongs exclusively under black tea. There is no hint of she or sheng flavor, no appearance of Puerh, no extreme darkening of the tea when left for a longer steep.

Whatever it is, I love it and will probably buy more. But I still don’t think this is a shu or sheng Puerh.

This is my last little bundle of this tea. It is tied in a ball like a wonderful Golden Mudan that I had many years ago by Harney and Sons.

I do not really detect the Puerh in this, but I love…really, absolutely love this tea. It is on the lighter side as body goes and even the color is a tad light, but the flavor is so very, very good. It has a sweet, smooth brightness without astringency. I made it western style this time and have steeped two pots so far. I will be checking out the website right away to see if they still have this and how much it costs, because I hate to be without and it seems like a perfect summertime tea.

Miraculously, this is my first tea of the day. I had a quick, light breakfast checking the news constantly to see if daughter’s school was cancelled. I can not remember school ever being cancelled here for tornado watches, but it was today. And the day flew away from me texting neighbor’s who are new to southern storms what to do, and texting kids and friends to see if they were okay. Several times, youngest and I paused, listened, and started to head for our “safe spot” but it turned out to be a hard downburst each time. There were tornadoes all around us, but I have not heard of any severe damage in our area.

What a delight to try this tea tonight. After tasting it, I am thrilled that there is at least one more sample pack. I am also broken-hearted that there is only one more sample pack.

I am surprised this is puerh. The company description is a little confusing. It is listed under both puerh and black tea, the package says it has both, but the online description only mentions puerh. Technically, puerh is made from Yunnan leaves and Dian Hong is Yunnan leaf so….I don’t know.

What I do know is that this tea smelled like burnt brown sugar, a whole pot of it. And a tiny hint of sweet potato. The package said to use 200 ml of water and I used my little gong fu pot. I steeped until I saw nice color, not for five minutes like the package said.

This was delicious and memorable and when I get my stash low enough, I plan to splurge and get some more of this because I really loved it.

Same for us up here in Richmond. It was especially unnerving between 5:50-6:30pm with everyone’s iPhones in the house beeping for tornado warnings every few minutes! Happy that you’re okay.

I haven’t ever heard of school being cancelled for a tornado
. Here in Missouri it’s everything officials can do to get people to take it seriously and not go to their front porch to watch.

We had some bad ones yesterday around Appomattox. I think the blessing is being no one lost their life.

Glad you’re safe!

I just heard 4 people were taken in the storm. With as much damage it could have been way worse.

Oh dear. I hadn’t heard that yet, mrmopar. The only damage in our immediate area is light property damage like broken car windows, downed limbs, uprooted trees. We had a few scares, but thankfully nothing touched down in our vicinity. Glad you are all safe!

I had this earlier tonight and all i can really say is that it’s an interesting tea. flower made with puerh and dian hong. it’s not something i would seek out to get more of as it’s on the lighter side for me…but it IS a pretty tea and nice enough.
