drank Mayan Chocolate Puerh by 52teas
4221 tasting notes

Another forgotten tea in my stash, recently “discovered” as I continue to sort through my stash to gain some sense of control over it. There was just enough to brew a mug of this tea, and as I’m at the bottom of the pouch, I have quite a bit of the pepper in this! It is SPICY!

The puerh is also very earthy… like the earthy I don’t like kind of earthy. I wish I had done a rinse the way I had with the first time I tried this. I steeped it for four minutes, and this is too earthy and very spicy. I think I may just make a latte with this…

Yeah, this is a little better with the steamed milk, but, it is still very spicy. I like spicy, but, when I taste the spicy over the tea and the chocolate, then that’s too spicy… although, tasting the spice over the tea at this point might be a good thing, as I think that the next time Frank is inspired to make a puerh blend he needs to do a little sampling of puerh teas to find a better one than the one he selected for this blend. It’s just too earthy … it puts the poo in the puerh, if you know what I mean.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
