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

would you shower with your pu?

by puerhking » Jul 29th 08 11:53 pm

I have been keeping a portion of a beeng in the bathroom that I shower in to see if the extra humidity will do anything. I have some separated so I can compare.
Any thoughts?

Sound interesting. A few problems though. Pu erh tales many years to age with a CONSTANT amount of humidity not just a 30 minute 70% per day. It could takes over 10 years with that method. Build a puidor as I did, If you are really interested in aging pu erh. When I was reading about building humidors, I read a lot about cigars, one expert said to NEVER EVER use the method you mentioned above. Bottom line I wouldn't do it, and not to be negative or anything, but I think you are setting yourself up for disappointment. But hey, go for it! It will be an interesting experiment.
Hope this helped, and Good Luck! :D :D :D

Don't forget the sometimes very strong odors of shampoos, shower soap and deodorants and if have a toilet in the bath the odor of - yes - poo.
Don't do it.

You guys are showering with Pu/poo and you wonder why you have trouble getting a good date?

Shower in oolong, and I'll go out with you.

Chip takes regular tea baths, but I don't know if he's gotten to the kissing or candle stage yet. I sleep with my pu, so you know it's serious.
