I love pu-erh tea! So I was thrilled to see I had tossed this sample in my lunch bag this morning. The dry leaf smells very minty and chocolaty the perfect after lunch treat. When the leaves are steeping the smell of the pu-erh comes out to play with a very earthy but not overpowering smell and taste. All three flavors pu-erh, peppermint and spearmint play very nice together. I know I didn’t say chocolate in the ingredient list. I’m thinking (and what I’m tasting) is the peppermint and spearmint brings out the chocolate notes of this pu-erh, love it!

I am a tea lover, a wife, and mother of three cats (all rescues). I love to read, and to write. I’m also a BIG fan of the BBC’s Sherlock as well as Doctor Who.

I started drinking and enjoying tea (sure it was bagged Lipton, but it got me started) when my grandmother first introduced me to tea with milk and sugar (and peanut butter and jelly on toast) and my love just grew from there.

I was brought to loose leaf through a trip to Teavana aka my gateway to loose tea. But my taste has expanded along with my love of tea. Sometimes I right about tea on my blog – Gal In The Grey Hat.
