My newest obsession (in that it started less than 18 hours ago) is Pu-Erh tea. It is the only kind of tea that is fermented, not oxidized, and it is often specially aged for years. Like yogurt, it is “alive” — good Pu-Erh should be “teeming with microbes” according to Pu-Erh.net. Those in the know can tell you what is a “good year” for Pu-Erh, just like a wine, and that the only real Pu-Erh comes from Yunnan Province. Supporters say it is a cure for almost every disease and affliction on Earth, detractors say it tastes like drinking dirt. Come to my house and you can decide for yourself.

  1. Be afraid! Be very afraid!

    What begins as a simple indulgence ends up with the planning of a tea storage room.

    I am a couple years ahead of you on the tasting/ learning curve with a shotgun approach to my selections.

    What have you tried so far and what did you like? Were you amazed that even low grade pu-erh was a world or two better than tea bags?

    Drop me a line, I’ll share what I have learned so far.
