Pu'erHere is a cute article from the NY Times about tea.  They are talking about Pu'er which is a little like drinking warm dirt, except it is a wonderful kind of dirt.  It is definitely an acquired taste.  But people are acquiring it.

Pu'er is actually a different plant then all the other things we call tea, but it has simular effects.

When I have more time I've got some things to say about tea, but not today.  I was totally deep into Chinese tea for about ten years.  Then I just quit because it seemed like I was accumulating too much stuff.

When I went backpacking or mountaineering or rock climbing I would bring all these little cups and a pot or brewing device.  So refined.
Then I discovered instant coffee.  Wow, so cool, so convenient, and what great flavor!
