    Anybody else drink pu-erh tea? I'm pretty new to it but I have a couple of lbs of it, some raw, some ripe. Ages between 2007 and 2000, I use a cheap little yixing pot that is surprisingly nice for it's cost. I tend to drink it pretty weak, I only use about 1 gram of tea per 2 oz of water, which seems to be half the average amount.

    Anyway, I was just wondering what everybody else's pu-erh routine was? how much? what type? how long? what type of pot?

    I've rarely drank pu-erh... maybe I should more.

    If Jen says you have to drink it, you must. She's got that feminine charm thing going for her.

    To be quite honest... I think I've had pu-erh only once.

    Never got into tea really but the threads that keep coming up are peaking my interest.

    Pu-erh is really neat stuff. The thought of making tea, from an ancient tree is just cool. The oldest known pu-erh tree is about 2,700 years old.

    yeah it's interesting. It's also fun to make if you use a yixing pot and it's really pretty. I also drink a lot of loose leaf tea when I'm not in the pu-erh mood or I'm at work. A yixing pot and a tea that requires a rinse steep don't work very well in the office.

    My first glass of pu-erh was fantastic. I will definitely get more. Thanks again Jen.

    I havent had any in a while. I generally drink white tea at night. If I'm looking for a hot drink during the day its coffee. Or espresso. Or anything that comes out of the machines that make either of the two. But I reserve tea for night time, so I drink white, with barely any caffeine.

    JayKay I may be wrong but I think you might have fun over at How's your Day thread.
