Steepster has GOT to be eating my tasting notes, because I can’t believe that I haven’t written one on this tea before. I have had gallons of it.

This is my puerh of the evening, hoping to combat the kind of horrible reflux that awakened me in the wee hours this morning.

This tea comes as small coin shapes that are scored across the middle so they easily break in half, somewhat like a tuocha in volume and diameter. I have had my “tube” for over a year. It was a Christmas surprise from hubby, purchased at Tin Roof Teas in Raleigh, NC..

This is an earthy puerh, not too strong and not fishy. I made two steps with a half coin, and the color is a medium orange “normal” black tea color, not the inky black you sometimes get with shu puerh.

This has been especially delightful tonight, as it is getting a wonderful oily body as it cools a little in the pot. I would call it creaminess, but when that thick mouthfeel appears in a puerh with mineral taste added in, I always think of oil, the way Murphy’s Oil Soap smells to me.

Good stuff! I will probably get another three steps or so out of this tomorrow.

My wife and I are visiting my family near Raleigh this month. I’m trying to convince her to pass Tin Roof Teas while we can! However, within the next few months, I can make the trip more often, considering the (hopeful) move down to N.C.

Raleigh has Angelina’s teas too I think.

mrmopar – Angelina’s is in Winston Salem apparently. I looked it up and that seems to be the closest one. I have never been.

Rufus – Come on down! Our new neighbors right across the street just moved here from Ohio! They liked the warmth and the housing prices. My sister-in-law is from Ohio, too.

ashmanra- We plan on doing so! My wife is from Goldsboro, and wants to head on back there!

mrmopar

Yep, I stand corrected. Not sure why I thought Raleigh.

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
