Few days ago, a friend from Yunnan came visiting. This friend don't drink coke or coffee, he only drink tea. Okay, tea is not so bad, I drink tea too, so I ask him what kind of tea he drink. He told me that he only drink raw puerh, cook puerh, toucha, puerh cake, puerh candy and aged puerh. WAIT THE MINUTE .... it's not like he drink sencha, oolong, green tea or ceylon. He only want to drink one type of tea, and it's only puerh!
So, we ended up hoping many tea shop in KL and Melaka. Not to mention, he also give me puerh as gift. After so many days of drinking puerh in the morning, afternoon, evening and sometimes even at night ... now I'm having some sort of withdrawal symptom. Somehow this few days, I stop drinking coffee few times a day, but ended-up drinking puerh few times a day. Where did I find puerh to satisfy my addiction? Well, my girlfriend do have a collection of expensive cake and I started breaking it for brewing. I'm starting my addiction with her RM100 per piece cake. Although I'm not an expert in this type of tea, but I think I'm lucky to have drink more expensive cake, from very old tea to some rare tea. Of course I had also drink many cheap and loussy puerh in the past! Those that don't even deserve to go into my mouth (that's how loussy the tea is).
Okay, time to go back to my drink ....
