China’s wonder tonic

For more than 1,700 years, the Chinese have been drinking pu’erh – especially as a digsetif after a heavy meal. It is traditionally aged underground, and as with fine wine, the older it is, the more prized its taste. This particular tea is part of the new school of pu’erh production. Called a “cooked” (shou) pu’erh, it’s heated and fully dried to simulate aging. So unlike some pu’erhs, you don’t have to rinse the leaves before. It’s smooth, earthy and very strong, with a hint of dark honey. (MK Kosher)

Ingredients: Chinese pu’erh tea from Yunnan Province.

Eww. This was my first straight puerh and I did not like it at all. I think it is the kind of tea I like the less, which is regretfull because I wanted so hard to love it! I dunno, but it seemed fancy and all. However, the smell and taste remind me of a barn. I tried too cups of it so far and I couldn’t finish either one of them. I will try other straight puerhs, maybe it was just this one that does not suit me.

I was so excited to finally try a straight pu’erh, the davidstea near me had been out of stock of both this and the sheng, so when i finally saw it i got some. I tried it this morning after reading some reviews on it commenting on the fish smell/taste which has lingered in my throat all day, it wasn’t honestly that bad when i was drinking it but with each sip i grew increasingly upset with it. I didn’t really taste much other than the fish and some i guess banana residue from the tea i had before. So yeah, banana fish, not a big fan

Flavors: Fishy

Even though David’s is very accessible for me, I am still pleased to see some of the tea’s in the box, since I haven’t tried some of the one’s included. This is one of them.

This is not the most complex of pu’erhs, but I didn’t find anything offensive about it either. Mostly earthiness and soil. Doesn’t drinking dirt sound wonderful? I can see where people would find a fishiness about it, I did get hints of it, but it didn’t bother me too much, as I found it very easy to finish the mug.

I wish I knew how many rounds of the tea box this has gone through. I would remove it if nobody else was interested in it.


This is at least it’s second. I am sure there is no problem if you remove it.


Ok. Thanks!

Okay, so today was my weekly outing to David’s Tea near my office to try something new. I feel that my palate has gotten more refined, and I have been getting adventurous lately in trying plain teas. So, I had my first cup of pu-erh ever. My first impression was that it smelled like buttcrack. It didn’t taste bad, but I couldn’t get by my initial impression.

I am dreading this morning. Today, barring a miracle, my beloved cat will be put to sleep because of kidney disease. While I am hoping my vet can work a miracle there is little hope. The cat has stopped eating and I cannot let the cat go by self starvation.

This tea is sweet with dates notes, I would venture to say. I picked it out because it was the first puerh I came across. IT is a tasty tea.

I brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 30 sec.

I’m so sorry. I hope your vet can pull something out of their sleeve.

You’re doing the right, loving thing, even though that thing sucks and hurts like hell.

Take good care of yourself.


My cat died around 11am today. I am saddened beyond my ability to express. I should not grieve this much for a cat, but I do.


I’m sorry Allan, losing a pet is never easy. Take care of yourself.


I’m very sorry to hear about your cat. You are absolutely entitled to grieve for him or her. Pets are family too and though they don’t live as long as people, they have a huge impact on our lives.


I am very, very sorry for your loss.


I’m so sorry for your loss. You did the right thing and preserved her dignity and saved her as much pain as you could. Pandora and you were both lucky to have had each other.


Allan, Im so sorry for your loss.


I’m so very sorry.


Thank you for all the support. I wish I could think about something other than my cat.

Jonesing so hard for a nice cup of shou, realizing I had none in my desk at work, remembering that a new Chinese tea shop had opened down the street, walking there, finding that they were not open, then returning to work.

Such was the saga that lead to me drinking this at my desk at work. It is a fair imitation of a decent pu’erh, and it is highly inexpensive.

This was the first pu’erh that I’ve tried, and while I liked the smell of the dry leaves, when I prepared it the tea smelt like a barn. It didn’t taste awful, but the smell of the tea while I was sipping it was very much a turn off. I would try another kind of pu’erh tea, but not this one again!

ok it taste like dirt a bit but….With all the good things it can give… I think it’s a must. It’s also a tea that you must learn to enjoy and adding a little bit of honey etc…won’t kill you.
I drink it everynight, after supper. I had a surgery and I don’t diggest as good anymore. This tea’s the best help! Works for real!!!

Earthy, hints of fishiness, very pungent, some smokiness. Unappealing at first, a bit musty. For me it was worth trying, but not buying.

It reminds me a lot of yerba mate, but if you leave it to steep too long, it gets worse with every sip. With agave, it’s decent in small doses, but only for people who really, really like their tea super-strong.
