drank PU'ERH, ORGANIC by The Tea Spot
361 tasting notes

I so want to be one of those people who likes puerh, and not because it’s healthy or anything, just because they truly enjoy the flavor. Unfortunately, that’s just not me I guess. I made this in the gaiwan so I could do super quick steeps and control the flavor a little bit. Despite being able to brew very mild cups, I just don’t really like the flavor. I don’t mind it in blends when it plays a minor supporting role, but it just doesn’t have star quality for me. I’m glad I got to try it though, thanks Shelley_Lorraine!

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
