    I am a tea fan and drink it with the same passion that dedicated wine connosieurs drnk wine. I love the language of tea-anyone fancy a first-flush estate Darjeeling or an especially Fine Tippy Oolong? All that aside, I'm writing to ask if anyone else drinks pu-errh tea. It is a tea that is fermented and aged from China by a process that is still a state secret. It is supposed to be extremely good for autoimmune disorders and also as a general tonic and cleansing agent. It tastes VERY different from Lipton, lol, but I love the earthy pungency. I suspect for most it would have to be a cultivated taste. But I thought Id ask...there might be some of y'all who are acquainted with Traditional Chinese Medicine.

    where do you get it? I'm a coffee addict and a tea afficianado (sp?) and I'd happily drink this stuff (which I suspect is pricey) if it'd help!

    Drinker here, is the name of it; Pu-errh? I am not sure what you said there (fibro fog??).

    I like black, very strong tea. Can't deal with the green teas, tried a dozen of them and they are just too mild for my taste.

    Where do you buy it? Will give it a try.

    I love tea, though I love coffee more, especially now I have cut down to 2 cups of a morning!

    My partner worked in China a little while back for 2 years on a mine site there. He bought home a couple of tins of Chinese tea and if I could read Chinese I could tell you what they are haha

    I haven't tried them and probably won't, they look like someone has just pruned the shrubery and placed it in a beautiful tin, though their aroma is rather sweet and earthy lol

    cheers

    White tea is very mild but high in antioxidants. If you find green tea tasting like warm water, then you won't care for white tea.

    I love those teas that look like sticks and twigs. I find if you steep them a long time, they are positively wonderful.

    Still hoping to hear what that other stuff....pu-errh....is.

    I live in the UK. Here most major food companies that sell tea offer at least one decaf blend, Jacksons are a big name and they too offer decaf versions. Most supermarket chains also sell own brand decaf tea.

    Hope you manage to find some.

    Cheers
