952 Tasting Notes
Maybe it’s because I’m new to pu’erh but it seems to me that this tea isn’t as awful as everyone has led me to believe. It’s sweet, it’s slighty creamy and then that smooths over into something earthy.
Maybe I’m just used to artificial flavouring? Or I don’t know how good this should actually be? I’ll probably have a better idea of what pu’erh should be like after I receive my sample from Butiki but for now I’ll play around with the few samples I bought from Davids.
Now, where do I file my Pu’erh teas? I probably should rearrange all my sachets in the boxes and get more containers, but buying more storage containers just means that I’m accepting the higher number of teas that I have. :| Better to just have them strewn on my counter and annoying me so that I sip and make room to file them away! #newplan
Mmm… I like that this is earthy and not fishy!
It figures! I just finished the last of this today, and now I’m sad, even though I had this sitting at a low rating for awhile now.
I like the ginger and orange, and I enjoyed the earthy puerh lurking below the surface. Also, my stomach was bugging me a bit, and after drinking about 8oz of this I feel a lot better. Coincidence, maybe? Either way, I think I need to get some more puerhs! (From anywhere. Just flavoured for now though because I’m afraid to try it alone again). Not sure if it was the puerh or the ginger or both that made this so good.
Upped my rating.
I took this out of my trade it away pile so I could have a cup of it today, but …. it’s just as awful as I remember.
Back in the swap box it goes. Maybe someday, someone will love it.
Mmm! This is a great after-dinner tea! I really should drink Fantasy Island so I can compare the two, especially since ozli was kind enough to send me some!
I picked this tea tonight for the sipdown!
It’s really tasty and ultra sweet. It’s enjoyable, but I think I prefer their rooibos teas and chocolate teas more than this one. I’m passing the rest on to Jackie T, who I hope enjoy it more than I did!
Yes! This is a winner. I want more of it when I run out. 20g would do…
Oh, also I totally broke my tea buying hiatus. :O I was having a rough day, and I thought if I went into a Davids to buy a matcha spoon (so I could try my matcha samples easier) then I’d be happier! But then I grabbed Ceylon Spring and Kokomo Green.
Ummm… I technically didn’t order anything though, right? Riiiiight? /0\
I’m going to finish drinking this and go to bed. I didn’t see more than a few little green leaves in the mix so I doubt this would keep me up. I’m re-reading the Dark Tower series. It’s both awful and wonderful at the same time. Books are confusing.
Oooh – very fruit! I was hoping more from this because I’ve enjoyed the other bluebird teas, but I think the hibiscus on this is detracting too much from the rest of it. It’s too tart!
of course had I known there was hibiscus in it beforehand I would have steeped it for less. For that reason, I won’t rate this. At 3 minutes, it might have been perfectly balanced, and iced it might have been amazing.
Seems like an odd combo – hazelnut and oolong? It’s pretty good though. I enjoyed it, even if it was slightly artificial tasting. Drinking the rest of my 1oz pack won’t be any trouble, but I probably won’t rush out to get more.
I’m happy I got a chance to taste this one as it sounded interesting. When I smell it, it reminds me of nuts, but when I taste it I get a little bit of caramel corn, followed by apples.
Even as a fruity/nutty green it is very enjoyable, and seeing as it’s about 95% add-ins, I imagine it barely has any caffeine in it either!
This was a surprise tea from Melanie!
I was a bit nervous when I finished brewing it due to the light pink colour, but no – it’s not hibiscus! It’s fruit! This tea is nice and fruity, and quite refreshing either hot or cold, although it’s much nicer cold.
It would be quite pleasant to sip away at this all summer!
