Chemical Burn?

by teaformoi » Mar 10th 19 3:47 pm

Hello, I just tried puerh for the first time yesterday and noticed toward the end of my session that my tongue was (and still is today) feeling burned, much in the same fashion as bromelain when you eat a lot of pineapple.

Does anyone else experience this or know the cause, I've read a couple threads where people mentioned a numbing but I'm wondering if anyone's found a compound perhaps a byproduct of the fermentation or putrefaction?
