I’m a huge fan of pu-erh. I haven’t been a fan of flavored, especially fruit flavored ones in the past, such as teavanas strawberry slender that they served me once when I asked for pu-erh.. ugh. It was the worst tea I’ve ever had. I do, however, trust Robert ‘s taste for turning me onto pu-erh in the first place so I was interested to try this. I’m only on my first steep, but it’s a delightfully interesting blend of flavors. I think the orange and the pu-erh really work together in this.

HA! A person who doesn’t like flavoured pu erh but still think that orange is a good combination with pu erh! I’ve long held that opinion myself and now I feel so confirmed.

Certain flavors go well with puerh. Orange does well with most any tea in my opinion. However, my favorite flavors with a dark rich puerh are vanilla, caramel… lots of cream and sugar… or just strait!

Angrboda

Sweet flavours? I’ve never seen that in a pu erh… Interesting! I do have a caramel black that I’m more or less addicted to. Thanks for that tip, I’ll keep an eye out.

drank Genmai Cha by Hime

interesting. This is my first Genmai cha. My first impression was good, but since it’s like nothing I’ve tasted, I will have to drink a few more cups to acquire a real taste for it. It’s still a strange substance, somewhere between rice cakes and green tea, but definitely likable.

Very smooth and a nice delicate blend of floral flavor with the green and black. I could smell the fruits much more than taste them, but personally I prefer it this way.

This blend of spices has a unique flavor. It’s a nice alternative when I’m craving chai in the late evenings, but don’t want to be awake for many hours to come.

drank Masala Chai by Teavana

It felt scratchy on my throat and bitter on my tongue. I asked for it with milk and no sugar, like I usually take my Masala Chai. It needed some sugar I think. I think I’m really picky about masala chai mixes. I have only had a few I really liked. This was not my favorite. I prefer more cinnamony taste.

That’s the way I like my chai too- although I do like it clean as well. If you like chocolate and cayenne, may I suggest 52teas Mayan Chocolate Chai?:)

Hannah

Thanks for the suggestion. I like it plain also, but with more tea flavor less soap.

Cofftea

Haha yeah soap chai is bad.
