I was not sure if I should add this Pu’erh or not as I cannot read the Chinese writing to determine what the brand name is but I can always give links to where I purchased this from if anyone is interested. It was a sample from 51different flavours of Pu’erh that I purchased via eBay that came directly from Yunnan, China. This is the first sample I have tried.

After rinsing the wonderful dark brown tea with crystallized chunks of orange peel and steeping for 2 minutes in boiling water (which was as instructed) I can note the memorable smell of Pu-erh with an additional sweetness being the orange.

The sweet and bitter orange compliments the Pu’erh very much giving it a twang that makes you ask for more. I find that a lot of Pu’erh tea’s are subtle but taste very pure and refreshing and this one is no exception. Being so subtle I am not sure if I would be able to tell specifically that the extra flavour is orange but once you know what it is it truly makes sense.

Flavours could always be enhanced by adding some extra dried orange peel which can be found from most health food shops but I like it the way it is. Plus it has a good strength that gives you a WOOSH with a slight buzz but both in a good way.

In two words… Loving it.
In another two words Thumbs up.

Bio

I am 26 years old from Leicester, England. I have been drinking tea for many years now and have been getting more and more appreciative about good tea’s. I like to try new and exciting tea’s and import regularly as a treat.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I am also an avid reader and enjoy curling up with a book (mostly crime, horror, thriller, literature genres) in one hand and a cup of tea in the other.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.
