My friend and I went to Tea Gallerie’s tasting room. They offer “flights” where you can try several different teas before you buy. Scottish caramel pu-erh was hands-down my favorite. The heavenly smell of caramel and butterscotch wafts up from the cup before your first sip. As you drink, you can taste the yummy deep pu-erh flavor but it is tempered by the smoothness of the caramel. I couldn’t stop drinking this one!! So yummy!

Flavors: Butterscotch, Caramel, Malt

I love this one. I got it from Angelina’s Tea. Add some milk and maple syrup and its like Irish cream

Tea Gallerie also had a really nice reserve milk oolong that I liked. I’m so glad I got to try some of their teas. Thanks for the recommendation boychik—that sounds delicious! I did bring some home so will have to try it!

Don’t forget to rinse it first since its puerh. Few secs;)

TeaGirl

Thank you for reminding me. I’ve never had a pu-erh before. Do you rinse it lightly or more than that?

boychik

This one just cover with boil water and 3-5 sec is enough. Don’t worry it’s so strongly flavored, you will not wash it out.

TeaGirl

Sounds good. :) thank you.

I’ve been thinking of buying this from my local tea shop, now I’m sure I should buy it.

brewed mine with steamed soy milk. It’s such a bright zippy tea. It feels like I’m wrapped in winter.

This is a very good vanilla. I like it over Adagio’s and Harney & Son’s. Perhaps not quite as much as Betjeman & Barton “Le Classique”.

I like most forms of earl grey, but I found this one to be a bit too weird for my taste. I found the vanilla to be a strange combination with the bergamot. I would try it again but was not impressed initially.

If you brew the tea strongly like I do, it tastes more like apple cider than anything else. I serve it to my friends whenever they come to my house.

I am not usually a big fan of Earl Grey, since I find bergamot to be somewhat astringent, but I love this tea! The addition of the vanilla really mellows out the bergamot flavor. It is a nice, creamy tea that I love having in the afternoon.

The sweetness of the coconut peels perfectly balances the strong taste of the Pu-Erh. One word to describe it: de-li-cious!
