Muitle: Pu erh of the Aztec gods.

by BioHorn » Jun 20th, '13, 17:12

Greetings from Mexico City.
My wife always told me it tasted like aged pu erh. So here I am enjoying a nice tall glass of muitle. It is a medicinal herb

Too lazy to resize. Here is a photo of the brew:

The color in a glass is a nearly flourescent purple! The odor is a bit like beet juice. The taste a bit like fresh peas in their pod. Most interesting is the "hui gan." It leaves a long lasting aftertaste on the back of the throat.

Well it must really clean your system. I am just back from 24 hours in the hospital for kidney stones (7!)
:shock:
A Dr. friend seems to think this may have gotten things moving. It is a pain I would wish on no person!

Ouch! Hope you are feeling MUCH better now.

And I think I will pass on this elixer (though I had already decided to do so based upon appearance alone:)

Good news, Shincha awaits you ;)

Hi Jay,
Thanks for the thought. And thank you, C-man for the note and sencha! Yes. Mrs.B. is from Mexico.

Apparently this is abundantly available from all local markets and "hierberas" in Mexico City.

I showed this to my coworker who lived in Mexico for a dozen years, and travels around Latin America frequently, and even she was scared of it! Glad to hear you are out of the woods Bio.
