One of the intentionally aged teas, Pu-Erh has a loyal following.

Well, it is true that healthcare people can and will talk about nearly any gross topic you can imagine, sometimes over lunch. And after all, I do work in a gynecology office, so there's not much off limits in conversation! :lol:

But... talking about someone else's "pu" is different than talking about your own. :shock:

I often find yellow threads (not hair) in my changtai tuo chas.
This doesn't bother me much.

Broken glass, in some no-name mini tuocha. Hair, plenty of times. But whateva -- it ties me to the reality of the tea process. It's not stainless steel robots making this stuff!

The cloth came with the filter?

I must say, I can't recall finding anything very strange or disgusting.

I found a good-sized hunk of what appears to be charcoal today.

I haven't found anything stranger than puerh in my puerh, but I run mine through a gold coffee filter basket on its way to the cup.

Same here, the hair was strange enough but like Dizzwave says it makes you realize that there's someone on the other end that's packaged it before you got it. So its not so bad.
