drank Caramel Pu Erh by Tea Desire
1116 tasting notes

My bag says only pu-erh and caramel pieces in it, sans ‘natural flavor’. Regardless, this is fantastic. There are chunks of caramel in here, and it’flavors the pu-erh beautifully. I find pu-erh’s really help my stomach and get my digestive juices flowing, and thus why I’m trying this tonight… so amazingly delicious, even oversteeped.

Why did they have to close all their local stores? Why didn’t I ever see this one on the shelf when I went in? These are important tea-questions to ask. :)

I wonder if I can convince my mom to stop into the Nanaimo store tomorrow… Ahem.

MissB

Heh. I only saw this online after I specifically went looking for it — if that helps? I’m going to go through this fast. Already on cup #2.

Oh crap, I didn’t look at the pu-erhs when I was at the Edmonton location the other day. Wonder if they had it.

OMGsrsly

The Nanaimo store is apparently closed. Seriously choked. :/

MissB

What?! Argh. Well that blows. When I order more, I’ll grab you some OMGsrsly, although frankly I’ll be AWOL still in person for a bit.

I called the number and apparently they’ve moved the store. But I was on the ferry already. :) I’m just really frustrated because that keeps happening with this company.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
