I guess I’m the only one around here who likes this? I enjoy drinking it after workouts and I find it zesty and refreshing. The anti-inflammatory effects of tumeric and the other herbs are a nice bonus. I actually make an ice cream with this by steeping it in milk and it is delicious.

A truly magical tea and my new favorite. For those of us who love rice as a culinary ingredient in its own right, rather than just a bland starch, this evokes some of the best heritage rice varieties and hand-crafted mochi. I don’t know how, but the puerh doesn’t overpower this at all, but blends seamlessly to make a soothing and evocative cup of tea.

Relatively mild pu-erh, but has a distinctive marine quality that reminds me a bit of seaweed.

One of my favorites because it works so well even without milk. It is hearty and richly spiced enough to stand on its own, particularly with a long steep. The chocolate flavor is balanced by the earthiness of the pu-erh and yerba mate, with wonderful cinnamon and coconut undertones.

Absolutely delightful and refreshing, particularly when cold-brewed overnight. Naturally sweet, but with a great balancing tartness and spice.

A pu-erh tea that’s great for beginners. Rich and slightly earthy, but not too strong, it has smooth honey and floral undertones and almost no bitterness, even when over-steeped.

drank Chestnut by Adagio Teas

I’ve eaten a lot of chestnuts from all over the world and this does not taste like chestnuts to me. It tastes cloying and artificial. I’ll probably be giving this away.

Definitely one of my favorites. Refreshing and richly spiced without any “natural flavorings” just spices and herbs. It makes an absolutely delicious minty latte with honey and cream.

Since quitting coffee I’ve been looking for nice rich teas with strong flavors. I really think this tea fits the bill. The tea part is very high quality and distinctly a puerh. The cinnamon adds a bit of a pep, but doesn’t overpower the actual tea. This is exactly what a flavored tea should be.
