A New Tea

For my birthday someone gave me something I've never tried before: Pu' er tea

Made in China, it looks and tastes like black tea but is actually fermented green tea. The flavor is unusual and appealing. The tea comes in fun-looking pressed discs. 

Have you ever tried it?


  1. Yes! I've tried this - my book club read a book about it: The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See. As part of the discussion, we all tried some. It was an odd flavour but I like unusual teas. I'm a big fan of gunpowder tea!

  2. What a delightful b-day present. I've not tried this unique tea myself before, but have seen it for sale in various Asian food shops in some of the bigger Cnd cities I've lived in over the years. Thank you for linking to the Wiki page for this tea. What an in-depth look at its history, creation process, variations, etc.

    Hope your November is off to a terrific start, my friend.

  3. I love how this tea is presented and I wouldn't mind trying it! xxx

  4. I'm not a big fan of tea, but my friend's teenage son loves trying all kinds of different tea.

  5. Very unique! Not one I've heard of. I go through tea drinking periods though, where i stumble on a unique one and try to make tea drinking a habit again (been trying since my teens), but I'm weirdly not a fan of hot drinks so after a couple weeks I usually lose the urge.

    1. I've gotten some unique teas from Adagio! I'm most partial to a pure peppermint leaf steeped. Mmm! Refreshing.

  6. I've not tried it. On our honeymoon on our final morning in Basel we did try some interesting Japanese teas including Matcha as our host was a big fan of unusual teas.

  7. No, but that looks really good! I feel like I can almost smell it! I do like a strong tea from time to time.

  8. I haven't tried but would like to. Isn't that disc shape so lovely?
