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’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

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 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.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
