Pu’er is an aged tea. I haven’t reviewed many Pu’er teas here yet as I simply just don’t have very many. This magnificent Pu’er was provided to me by Lily and Peter over at PeLi Teas. It won 1st place in the 2009 World Tea Championships.
Adagio Teas has this neat feature on their website they call “Signature Blends.” With this, you can select the ingredients you want in your own custom tea, and even provide a label image for them to use on the packaging. I put together several mediocre teas before I created this wonderful Aged Pumpkin Rum Pu’erh.
Regardless of most of your tastes with tea, Pu’erh (poo-air) seems to be a love it or hate it thing. In the case of this artificially aged coin style Pu’erh, I’d say odds are high you’ll enjoy it. That is, if you enjoy a nice black coffee.
Colorado Tea Tour
Last week I wrote my second installment, preceeded by the first installment in this three part series relating my experiences on a trip to Boulder and Denver back in March of 2010. This is the second of three parts.
There’s something intrinsically wondrous about the Denver and Boulder area in Colorado. The air is clean and clear. The wildlife diverse, and the nature beautiful in so many ways.
There’s another side to this metro area in the mountains though. An extreme diversity of tea and tea companies makes this area one of several real escapes for passionate tea drinkers in the US.
As a self-proclaimed avid tea drinker I have to say I was impressed by my trip.
It’s been a week since the end of the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas and I’m still a little heady from the experience. Here’s a recap of my time at the Expo and my takeaway from the event.
