Did one rinse of this, probably ought to have done the two, but I like a stronger pu erh so I can add milk and sugar…it is almost like coffee that way. It was quite a dark brew, and quite strong. Maybe I’ll do more rinses and try it sans milk at some point also.

This one comes from CrowKettle from our last meet up. It’s pretty good, but I think I like flavored pu erh more…chocolate and caramel are particularly good combos for this earthy type of tea.

I might try using some of this with saigon chai. I’m itching for a good pu erh chai.

Thanks again for this sample.

Oh, I like that idea! I should try mixing a puerh and saigon chai as well.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
