I’ve reviewed this blend on Teaviews and ran through the 1 oz sample they sent me for review purposes in record time. The cup brews up very dark…almost coffee dark in color. The puerh is almost a non issue in this blend, but it does offer a rich earthy tea base (though not too earthy). The licorice (a flavor I don’t normally care for) blends spectacularly with the puerh, vanilla, and mint flavors. I found myself playing peek-a-boo with cinnamon and chocolate notes. Also, the mint in this is very fresh. Rishi seems to have a great source for fresh mint to use in their blends. I have already re-purchased this item——and I can’t help but wonder if this would be good when blended with a bit of Rishi’s Ginger Puerh?? I might have to try that.
