This was my puerh for the day. I may try and see if i can another one in later this evening, but if not, this one has been fantastic to drink over the course of the morning/afternoon. I am really a fan of Mandala’s original cakes. There’s something incredibly satisfying about them. I’ll be picking this one up again.
mmmm i should be through the last of this tomorrow. I made a cup tonight with dinner – homemade pasta sauce with our pasta! and then tossed the leaves in for a cold brew. Glad i picked up a bit of this, but not sorry to see it go. I’ve got a few other lime teas still so yay for that!

Another tea from kimquat! I’m not sure how i feel about this tea. It was a pleasant enough cup to drink but was it carrot cake? not really. I mean it had that vaguely cheesecakey icing sweetness feel to it, and the dry smell was really nice..but i wouldn’t call this carrot cake. So good cup of tea..but not carrot cake! lol thanks for sharing kimquat!
mmmm I’ve had this a couple times this week but keep forgetting to write a review on it. Kittenna shared this one with me and it’s delicious! Very much mandarin as opposed to “orange.” the flavour is subtle but blends really nicely with the tea to make a blend that is super tasty. I added a tiny bit of sugar to one of my cups and it was nice because the flavour popped just a little more. Overall a really nice take on these tea in oranges :)
