I brewed up a glass of this gringo pu-erh blend today, after yesterday’s first ever pure pu-erh experience. I was happy with my little tuo cha, which seemed to want to be reinfused over and over again. I called it quits after three servings, but I am pretty sure that it would have lasted many more.

I was thinking about pu-erh blends such as this Wisdom Pu-erh Chai, which present some questions to my mind. For one thing, how can they be rinsed without removing some of the flavors? Or perhaps they do not require a rinse? It’s strange because the chunks of tea in this sachet do look like broken off pieces of Pu-erh from a cake, along with some dried leaves. So it does look like pu-erh to me.

Another question is whether pu-erh blends should be adulterated with cream. My understanding is that people drink pure pu-erh straight, without any adulterants. Is that right? I ask because this blend tastes better with cream, so I gave it a bit of a douse.

The color is much redder than most black teas I’ve seen. It’s not a red amber, but more like a reddish gray liquor—once the cream has been added. It tastes pretty good, but I think that I’ll probably refrain from buying many more pu-erh blends in the future, given my positive experience with pure pu-erh yesterday.

If you like it with cream and it tastes better to you that way – drink it that way. As you try new ones, I would at least taste them without it first because they are different, but if you want cream, add cream. It’s bout making yourself happy.

Thanks for the wise advice, MzPriss! ;-)

I second everything MzPriss just said :-)

I agree as well. Tea is about enjoying what you’re drinking. Who is to say it’s wrong to add cream or sugar or honey or syrup or milk or whatever if that’s what makes one happy?
