These cute little hearts are perfect for Valentines Day, but really I’d enjoy them at any point in the year. They make it extra- fun to make a cup of tea. And the cup that results is great- not too smokey, or too dark, just a good rich cup of what’s almost like an oolong to my palette. I had an acupuncturist who recommended pu-ehr as a beauty treatment (drinking it), and also for stress-relief. While I don’t know about these claims, I’m enchanted by the little hearts, and even took a photo of them before I brewed one.

Any fishy flavor in this one?

Lisbet

Not that I could taste, and I am hypersensitive to fishy smells and tastes. Yick.

Kristin

Yeah, fish flavored tea is not good. But those hearts are just so damn cute. Did you get any of the Vanilla Nilgiri? Nom!

Lisbet

I didn’t! But after reading your review I now need to try that one. Although right now I seem to have too many caffeinated teas and not enough for the evening.

Kristin

I’m also swimming in black teas w/ caffeine or at least I will be soon. I just placed a $50 order with DavidsTea (a present from Mike for my birthday in April). At least 1/2 of that order is black tea.

Lisbet

Oooh what did you get?
Yeah, I need to find more decaf black teas. I mean, I drink at least half of my daily tea after 5pm.

Kristin

Bear Trap (herbal), baked apple (herbal), creme brulee (green rooibos), read my lips (mint chocolate black), Glitter & Gold (black, you’ll just have to look that one up), Buttered Rum (black), Fantasy Island (black with raspberry and coconut), Mint Chocolate Rooibos.

I begged to order now in case it takes a month to get here from Canada through customs. :)
