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

Oooooooh! Update from the last time I had this! So… I got the POUND of Pu-erh Vanilla Mint that I ordered! Mwahaha, I was so excited!
So to celebrate, last night I did as Rishi recommends, and I brewed it like a chai. Half milk, half water, and 2 tablespoons of tea per 12 ounces. It was very good (when you smell it you’re going to think of Andes Mints or Girl Scout Thin Mints!) but I, personally, prefer it just brewed with water. It creates SUCH a dark brew, but it’s not bitter at all, and it’s just… awesome. It’s awesome. You should try it. It’s awesome.

Have a great day!

I’m seriously slacking on the Pu-Erh tea drinking, I’ve had Rishi’s, but I don’t remember what kind, it was too long ago, I’m not even sure I have it. Good info Oh Cha!

LENA

but is it awesome? :)

@LENA F. Good question. But did she say that THIS one was awesome? Maybe TeaCast is better off sticking with his possibly awesome possibly not-so-great pu-erh, because it sounds to me like Oh Cha didn’t care for this tea.

@Oh Cha A pound?! That’s dedication. This is totally going on my list.

Oh Cha!

Seriously! It’s so good! I have at least one cup of this a day! The pound is going quickly!! LOL

I’m working on recipe possibilities for this tea… I’m thing about trying to make it into some sort of ice cream topping… but with frozen yoghurt of course… because I’m a health nut!! Maybe… a twist on a grasshopper you know???

I’ll let you guys know how it goes!! :)

Bio

I’m a foodie. I’ve worked in tea professionally, and the obsession never left. I’ve also worked at a wine bar (with cheese, truffles & charcuterie) and a teahouse/restaurant (with excellent artisan pairing dishes) on the side.
So I’ve done a lot of tasting… and you’ll notice I bring up food pairing a lot!

I’m all about sharing recipes and recommendations, so please feel free to throw any of yours my way, and should you ask I’ll be happy to do the same. I’m also old school with my brewing methods – so if you have any questions of brewing or artisan teaware, feel free to ask.

Activities:
Drinking artisan tea, indulging in an entire bottle of wine, savouring microbrewed beer, making everything from scratch, putting cheese on/with everything like a true Wisconsinite, spending months’ worth of paychecks on Amazon, and flipping through and smelling the pages of books I surely won’t get to for another 8-10 years.
