Thanks Shmiracles for this tea sample!

Dry, this smelled quite yummy. Some sweetness mixed somewhere in with black tea. Now steeped, there’s a bit of a different scent – and it includes the scent of pu’erh. I don’t care for pu’erh. At least not yet.

Initial taste is maple-y or hazelnut-y with something else there that is the pu’erh. But it doesn’t seem to be overwhelming.

In conclusion, there is a lovely sweetness to this tea and it’s quite bold. I think it would be best enjoyed in the morning.

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
