[quote="daughteroftheKing"]Smoke is for BBQ, not my tea. I'm in awe of you who love pu-erh. First cup: tasted like a musty dusty old barn. Second cup: the barn had burned.
If it's an acquired taste, I think I'll spend my time enjoying all the other wonderfully delicous teas in my cabinets.
This morning I had two infusions of Jade TiQuanYin (teaspring) in my brand new, first-ever gaiwan
. Yum. A little more green than I'd expected but slightly sweet, and I like it.
Now I'm onto White Darjeeling (adagio) with some Rosebuds tossed it.[/quote
Sounds like a badly made/stored cake to me.
