Pu Shock

by hop_goblin » Mar 11th 08 6:35 pm

Have you guys ever taken the time to read some of the reviews on Adagio's website on their pu po and pu dante? God, I laughed myself sick reading their first impressions on their first taste of pu! I can imagine what they must of looked like! Something possibly like this - :shock: lol Just rich!

Space you are correct. It supposed to soudn like pu-air. However, with more of a 'soft' a, breaking into the er. Like someone doesn't want to annunciate the air part but has to. Boy it is hard describing sounds in text. :D

The one "steeping" episode is absolutely ridiculous. Im sure a lot of producers and avid Pu fanatics in China are thinking ....."how did we let the westerners get a hold of this stuff!?...."

Surely there's an entry in the Klingon Dictionary to answer the question.

Perhaps the name originated from a light brew lover's first sip. Rather, the quote of the first person who brewed it a bit too long.

I was thinking more

<guy2>"Thanks!"
*guy2 goes home to brew it, gets caught up in reading or meditating*
<guy2>*sip* "PUARHH!"
