drank Pu-erh Vanilla Mint by Rishi Tea
161 tasting notes

This tea looks so pretty but tastes kind of…blah. Don’t let the pu-erh scare you away if that’s a factor for you not trying it. You can smell the pu-erh, but it’s not over the top taste-wise. It’s earthy and minty…and smells very cinnamon-y, but I do not taste too much of it. This does leave my mouth clean and minty as any good mint tea should, but this one is lacking in the taste department. It’s thin and weak despite having a very dark liquor. It should be called Pu-erh Mint because I taste absolutely NO vanilla. Rishi’s description (all of it) is WAYYY off on this one.

This tea might indeed benefit by being brewed like a chai, but I recommend saving your money for Samovar’s Moorish Mint instead. Mmmm….Now that tea can do no wrong.

I was also a little let down by the description on this one. I really expected to like it, but, eh… I got Rishi’s Maghreb Mint at the same time which I ended up liking a lot more than expected. It is described similarly to Samovar’s Moorish Mint, so you might want to give it a try if you haven’t yet. I think I need to try the Moorish Mint.

YEAH MOORISH MINT! I’m going to make some now. The light of inspiration has struck me, and its name is Lena.
