COME TO THE SPECIAL DARK PU’ER SIDE!

If I could describe this tea in a few key words it be: rich, decadent, and addictive. The flavor is strong and rich cocoa that gets better and sweeter each steeping. Early steepings the tea is so rich that I had to drink it in slow sips, savoring it. Later steepings I’m guzzling this tea like crazy and wanting more.

I feel I could have this Special Dark Pu’er and Milk Oolong (also from Mandala tea) and be set on dessert teas.

Great review. I really, really need to find an afternoon to devote to this tea. I keep overlooking it because I want to try it when I have a lot of time to spend with it. LOL Milk Oolong is also on that list….

Special dark does need an afternoon. I spent a couple hours working on the tea, totally worth it though.

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
