I love flavored pu-ehrs, but I keep going back and forth on this one. Slenderness aside, the dark musty taste of the pu-ehr is an interesting pairing with the tart sweetness of strawberry. I’m currently drinking this in a tea travel mug, so it’s getting the longest steeping of its life, and this is magnifying both tastes to an intensity that I’m not sure I find appealing. The pu-ehr in this blend also verges on tasting a bit darker than most I’ve tried.

I’ve decided that the strawberry in here tastes strongly like freeze-dried strawberries usually taste; have you ever tried those “Just Strawberries” in the plastic containers, sold at many grocery stores? Or, Trader Joe’s used to have freeze-dried strawberries. It’s a little tarter and less sweet than a fresh strawberry.

Pu-ehr is a relaxing taste to me in general, but the strawberry almost turns it into a dessert tea. I think I’d like to try this at a Teavana store, brewed freshly and fresh from the bin so I could really decide whether I think this combo works. I’d consider buying this one, as I got it in a swap.

My impression was also that the flavor completely covered up the pu-erh.

I have 2 favorite flavored Pu-erhs…DavidsTea Chocolate Orange and The Tea and Spice Exchange (which is in Dallas and online) Strawberry Chocolate Puerh and both are fantastic! Love Love Love! Shipping from Davids in Canada is $5.00 for whatever you order which is not bad. Let me know if you want a sample. Blessed Pascha!

I would absolutely love a sample! That would be amazing! We’re saving up for some stuff right now so I haven’t been ordering tea, but I miss my pu-ehr.
