Too much hibiscus. Not enough orange. Weird licorice aftertase.

Pu-erh fail! (148)

I might need to steep more H&S to make up for this one. At least I still have half a cup of Bilbo Brew in my other tumbler!

oh dear! i like licorice…. but with orange? thanks for the heads up!

tattooed_tea

Hmmm I didn’t get licorice or hibiscus.
That’s what I love about tea, how everyone experiences something different.

JustJames

@tattooed_tea. true that. still, with this review i wouldn’t buy much more than 10g.

Well don’t just listen to me! Some people seem to enjoy it, for whatever reason. :) Maybe I just didn’t steep it right.

Hahahaha. I love the IT crowd. Did you see the US pilot version? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNPj3jXhzgw (Definiately WALK AWAY)

I don’t mind some of the DT Pu-erhs but that’s only because I’m afraid to try pu-erh on its own after a disastrous attempt. I’m slowlying trying it mixed with other unflavoured teas though!

Shmiracles

oh gawd don’t make me watch that sad sad pilot again!! gahhh!

every single other puerh i’ve had from every single other company has been better than the DT ones. i tried a cup of a blood orange puerh from a local place here and then became obsessed with it, it was that good. (i do own the chocolate orange puerh though, and though i don’t drink it often and won’t buy more, i don’t regret having that one at least.)

I liked the berry puerh from DT, but not enough that I need to stock up on it. The ones from Tealux were better, especially the cocoa spice puerh.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
