The first time I tried this, I was quite sick and couldn’t even smell the leaves, let alone taste it.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I opened the package and inhaled deeply. I can’t believe I couldn’t smell it before! Very minty. The good kind of mint, though; also smelling sweet and a bit spicy. I am very excited to try this again!
The tea is a dark rust color. I can smell both puerh and mint. First sip is very minty. I have had minty teas before that were just disgusting; this one is sweet and pleasant! The cinnamon in this blend is just right. Just a few sips in and I am enjoying this very much.
Second steep +30 sec. A little darker in color than the first steep. Still smells minty but more of the puerh is coming through. Taste wise it’s the same way. There’s a bit more earthiness coming through but the mint is still the first thing I taste.
This is delicious!

This stuff is amazing like that. During summer I would cold steep the same leaves several days in a row, and then hot brew it before it lost its flavor!

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, green tea, and white tea. I have been getting more into black tea, especially those with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
