It’s raining, it’s pouring, the cinoi is sn…wait, no I’m up and I still have plenty of tea to drink before it gets too warm to enjoy a nice hot cuppa. There is no need for a full new review, as I enjoyed one cup of this same as always, hot with no additives (see previous reviews) before work.

However, after I had this cup this morning, I was not fully satisfied with it, and insisted on getting some half-and-half to have another cup with dinner. I have never had this tea this way, and I do not know why I really wanted it this way, but it was very good.

The tea is accentuated in every way possible. The half-and-half (being half cream and half milk) was smooth, sweet and light, yet slightly savory and rich at the same time. I believe this helped to bring out all of the different flavors in this tea: I can actually pick up the orange, I still have my spiced cookie with the nutmeg and cinnamon spices, even a bit more of the chocolate, and of course the earthy richness of the black pu-erh tea itself. Adding the half and half might not be the best way to get the true experience out of this tea, but it made each and every sip slightly different than the last. Overall, still a great tea. Infused 4 minutes.

You know, I tried something like this with just a regular black tea. I was at my parents house and being kind of daring. They only had lipton black tea but they had this really yummy coffee creamer with caramel in it. I will get the name of it. But yeah, added a little of this in the tea and it was amazing! Added just enough to give it a totally new taste… and would definitely try again.

Bio

I am a sarcastic perfectionist, a computer nerd, a game geek, an avid reader, a gadget guru, a wine (and tea) enthusiast, and (in my spare time) a chemist.

As I mentioned, I am a chemist, research and development to be exact, so when evaluating tea, it is much like evaluating my products: I will find the flaws and do my very best to fix them because it is what I love to do. Along those lines, nothing is perfect, but can have perfect qualities, I will highlight those also.

I made a preliminary guide to my rating scale:
0-19 – Did not like anything about the tea, feel it cannot be saved without being reformulated.
20-40 – Did not like the tea, it can be saved with extreme amounts of tweaking (i.e., sugar, milk, honey and or blending with another tea)
41-60 – Neutral about the tea, it can be helped or hurt by additives or blends, varied temperatures and steep times
61-70 – Decent tea, needs a little bit of help to get it in the place I like it, but definitely not out of reach
71-80 – Quality tea, liked it, will try again
81-90 – Really enjoyed the tea, high quality, will continue to drink the tea, not looking for something better
91-100 – Loved the tea, will continue to brew and drink and spread the word about the tea to everyone
