I don’t feel entitled to give this a number rating, but I don’t know how to review it without the rating, so please feel free to ignore the number.

This is not my type of tea, but it is probably good for those who like Pu-erh. (I’m fairly particular about what I like in tea——my tastes are not refined, but I am picky.)

This tea has the earthy scent, and also tastes somewhat earthy, which I don’t enjoy. However, it is a somewhat pleasant tea to drink.

I’ve only steeped it once, so far, and I am surprised at how flavorful it is with such a quick steeping. I prefer it with a touch of milk, but no sugar.

The presentation of this tea is my favorite! It is soooo adorable & just seeing the little hearts is enough to cheer up anyone!

So, while this is not at all my type of tea, it would probably be a good choice for people who are interested in Pu-erh teas, or it would make a great gift for tea lovers.

Thanks to Chi of Tea for the sample!

Oh, I wish I would have known that before I submitted my review.

Do you know if it can be undone?

I loved this tea! Such a lovely dark black tea. Stands up very nicely to milk & sugar. Very smooth & rich tasting.

(I only wish it was available in decaf.)

I generally dislike flavored teas. However, this is one of the few exceptions—-I like this tea quite a bit.

The cinnamon flavor, while being very flavorful, is still subtle enough not to be cloying or overwhelming.

I would describe this as a very pleasant & soothing tea.

I’m beginning to run out of this tea & I’m starting to worry about how I’ll replace it. It is a lovely, dark, strong black tea.

Have also continued to drink this & have found that with really hot water & a long time to steep, it is really good!

Have continued to drink this & have found that, with really hot water & a very long steeping time, it is fabulous!

I am very sad that I’ve run out. (And, that I don’t even actually know what it was so I could someday replace it.)

This was a nice decaf black tea. Not quite as strong as I’d like, but I’m sure that could be fixed by adding more tea. Had a surprising bit of sweetness to it.

Not as strong as I’d like, but an ok choice for a black decaf.
