Yes sheng puerh has a tendency to do it. If that bothers you switch to shu puerh which does not make one hungry.

Sorry for posting OT things in your tread silver, but it's called random pu thoughts so whatever.

I drank some pu today. It smelled like rottening leaves in an autumn forest. The taste first reminded me of Yunnan, but then tasted very crisp and very much like... cucumber. Plus a wee, nice hint of mushroom. Now, cucumber is something I associate with Japanese greens and TKY. Not with pu. You pu freaks out there, is cucumber pu usual? Is it "green" pu that has this taste?
