Has anybody here tried Golden Moon Pu-Erh tea?
Here's a link to this site it's on: (Mod edit:link deleted per forum rules)
I just heard of this type of tea after browsing the Golden Moon website. I had never heard of Pu-Erh before, and I am wanting to try it out.
If you've tried it before, can you let me know what you thought of it?
One of the intentionally aged teas, Pu-Erh has a loyal following.

Let's see, three posts in three different forums, all linking to the same specific site.
Well, you convinced me.

Sorry I wasted my time with a reasoned reply.
die golden moon, die....
Not that you are, or are not a spammer, but your 3 initial GM posts have sent up a red flag to members who are generally a friendly crowd.
Hey Tom I just remembered I have had a bag of this for a while now and totally forgot about it! It's decent enough, but being pretty much gong ting grade makes it a super finicky brew for shu. On it's best days it's pretty decent shu, on it's worst an undrinkable cup of nastiness. Not really worth the price IMHO.TomVerlain wrote:hi
I search for golden moon and found what looks like the website. I have never tried this brand. Alot of folks here like to know exactly which mountain the tea is from, what year and season it was harvested, and how it was aged and packaged.
For the price, I think you could do alot better.
Of course, since I have not tried it, I may be completely wrong. I just personally would rather spend the same amount of money (lets say the $12.95 for 2.5 oz + $4.95 shipping) on well known brands with well known provenance.
read the sticky at the top of the forum, and browse reviews.
For instant gratification, I would order this:

which I have not tried, but it is the kind of thing I would try.
