This tea was a recent one I scored at the trip to Capitol Teas In Washington DC. I’ve had it a couple of times now and I’m not quite sure what I think of it. It smells better than it tastes, in my opinion. There is definitely an aroma of toffee but the flavor doesn’t translate as well. To me it doesn’t seem that rich and decadent…

Unlike a lot of flavored pu-erhs, you can actually taste the pu-erh in here though and it’s very rich and smooth. I added some soymilk and liked it better than way. hmm. I bet this would be really good as a latte.

And I hope I can sleep tonight after drinking this so late!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec
The Purrfect Cup

I had the same problem you did with the toffee flavoring not turning up in my cup. But I too added in some soy and that did help it along a bit.

We do indeed! I think this particular tea is one that grows on you…and now I want a cup!

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
