Decided to go round 2 with this one. Into the mix I threw 5 mini tuo cha from specialteas (#590). This was pu erh! The strawberry flavor mixed very nicely with the earth pu erh flavor, and despite the long steep time there was no bitterness at all. So if you like the taste of pu erh, add some extra for a bold kick.

Well, it says Pu-Erh, but then on the label it just says black tea. Anyhow there was no earthy flavor at all. It was all tangyness – not bad at all, just not what I was expecting

Did another chai + pu erh combo. This time it turned out great. I had more chai mix this time around, and so was able to add more.

I used my Breville One Touch. First 3 minutes at 212 with basket cycle, then add milk and set for 5 minutes at 165 with basket cycle.

Its not perfect – it does come out a bit peppery but I love it.

I went a little off course on this one. I used the samovar stovetop but I used organic pu-erh from SpecialTeas. This was an interesting brew, I’m going to try it again when I get some more samovar chai.

My first matcha so I don’t know what good vs bad is. But. i did enjoy it. I started off with a very leafy taste with a surprise but very brief finish of lemon

Drinking culinary grade plain… interesting! I’m massively intrigued by the note of lemon.
