Huh. This was an odd one for me. Not in a bad way. I was recommended this tea for an iced tea, but I actually prefer it warm.

Iced, this tea starts with a strong hit of hibiscus (sorry for all you hibi haters), then fruit, then the pu’erh. I found it the opposite when I didn’t chill it. Warm, you initially get a strong hit of pu’erh (very earthy) and then it finishes with a the fruit, with a slight hint of hibiscus (I found once you ice it, the hibiscus kind of explodes). This will be a fantastic tea to start getting into spring with since it’s fruity but not bad as a hot tea.

How the story goes is that one day, a feeble, weakened graduate student decided to stop ingesting so much caffeine and additives (sugar, cream, milk) and instead headed for the land of tea.

I should probably mention that I’ve been drinking tea… pretty much since I can remember. The beauty of growing up in a still-semi-Euro family! I was introduced to green teas and pu’erhs by herbalists and acupuncturists in my teens.
