Oh, this smells funky as the teabag soaks. Like fish. That’s really a nasty smell for my first cup of the day. I hope it doesn’t taste like fish or I will have one seriously unhappy mouth.

The tea itself isn’t that bad…definitely tastes like dirt but with an almost sweet note. But ugh, that smell! Every time I lift the cup to my lips I am grossed out by it. I’m gonna go dump this out.

(I can’t remember if I’ve had Puerh tea before, but this Stash teabag is NASTY and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone!)

LENA

consider it AVOIDED! send some to Auggy…she likes the odd fish-tea taste sometimes. :)

Suzi

LOL, luckily I only had the one bag from a sampler or something :) Now I’m drinking a Sencha from Cost Plus that tastes much better :D

Ricky

I mean she likes bacon tea, fish is a close relative…. * whistles *

Auggy

Hey! Why’s everybody picking on me?? Sure, I’ve had a few cups of fish tea (or even tea that makes me want to eat… well, eel) and bacon/smoked ham tea is good! But I don’t know if I’d go for a bagged fish tea. So hats off to you, Suzi, for being brave enough to give it a go!

Ricky

Picky on Auggy? Neverrrr! Not in a million years!

LENA

we pick because we care….and want cookies.

Suzi

Auggy (and everyone else) – can you recommend a non-fishy Puerh? :) Or at least a better-quality one?

Also, I second Lena. We want mistake cookies!!

Auggy

Haha! The coworker I had to explain my laughter to requested some as well! Peer pressure! Peer pressure!

As for non-fish pu-erh, I do not recomment ROT’s Imperial Pu-erh. It was like sweet smoked fish. Not bad. But still, fish. Takgoti sent me some Samovar’s Maiden’s Ecstasy which was nice and non-fishy. She also sent me some of their Palace pu-erh which is supposed to be a grade above ME’s so I would think it would be even better (though somehow I haven’t tried it yet – maybe I will tonight when doing some Christmas cooking!)

Awww, this sounds so ICKY. I really liked Golden Moon’s Pu-erh, which is smooth and smoky and sweet and earthy. No fish whatsoever! I’m so sorry your first experience was baaad. :(

Suzi

teaplz – I might have to try Golden Moon once I work myself up to drinking pu-erh again :)
