  • That is awesome man. I am a big tea drinker. I have about 5 glasses a day. I like mine very earthy and strong with a bit of creamer and agave. The way I like to measure the taste is what I like to call the "memory jogger" test. When I was a kid I used to play in big piles of leaves in the fall. There was always this earthy taste in the air almost a cross between cut grass and fresh compost. When the taste jogs memories of that earthy tasting air, then I know its good tea. Cheers.

      Man, you described it dead on.
      Thats perfect. I'm not that great with words, wish I was but I can be a bit of a knuckle dragger with words. But you just hit the nail on the head with what you wrote.
      Have you drank Pu-erh tea before?

    • @10fold I have, yet it was already prepared for me. There is nothing like preparing it yourself though. So as soon as I get the chance, I am going to get it from the asian market out here. I honestly did not know it came like that. I just remember being served it and thought it was great.

    • @10fold Oh and the way you speak is perfect. Pleasant and to the point man. I think that is what makes your videos so great. Just simple and meaningful.

      The tea that I show in my video comes from this guy. his name is David Lee Hoffman and he has a collection called "the Phoenix collection". I also have a pu-erh tea called "Chrysanthemum Pu-erh Mini Tuocha" harvested in 1999. when steeped it turns almost blood red and to me it has a salmon-esk taste about it.

    • @10fold Oh wow, I have actually had the Chrysanthemum tea before. I am not sure it was Pu-erh though because, once again I did not prepare it. It was actually really red as well. Hmmmm... Ok I am actually going to check it out.

  • That looks like dried dog poop. Or chewed and dried Red Man chewing tobacco.

    I am drinking some tea myself right now. Its called Li-p-ton, but sometimes I have Luz-i-an-ne. Instead of bamboos, it comes in these handy little packets that you dip in boiled water. And you can make mass quantities of it at one time. I usually make it a gallon at a time.

    But to each his own I guess.






    Just kidding with ya man, nice yoursay!!

  • My store brand Walmart tea huddles in the back of the pantry, afraid to come out and face the competition.

  • Pu-erh is the shit but not for everyone. It has an earthy taste but could be pleasant if you prepare it right and you're open minded. I had one from 1996. Should be relatively easy to find in local tea specialized stores.

  • That's cool, we all like trying new things here too, last weekend, when my kids were home, my son brought some new kind of tea, new to us anyways, but it was the tea and the way the make it and drink it in Iraq/middle eastern countries. It was alright, but I prefer drinking my tea just like my bourbon, straight up, no cream and sugar.

  • I do not like Pu Erh tea. I have had a few different kinds.

    I'll stick to Black, Oolong, and Green teas.

  • Cool. I'm a big fan of weird ass teas. Maple Ice Wine Tea, Calming the Storm Tea, The Healing Tea, The Warrior Tea etc. I hit the Mother Lode when I went to the Twinings Tea Shop in London. Loose leaf tea is the way to go. Fuck the rest.

  • Cool post.
    Tea kicks some major ass.

    I drink a lot of Pu’li.

    It's a double fermented tea that I've been drinking for about 20 years and it may taste like fermented seaweed, but its health benefits are astounding.

    I've also got a Chai tea marinade for chicken or pork if you're interested.
