There’s definitely a resemblance, but I thought the balance of flavors was pretty different. Blood Orange ws much, much more orangy to me. Not that I’ve had that many, but of the four or so I’ve had, it seems that any time a pu erhs is flavored the pu erh taste is weaker.
Blood orange’s citrus notes definitely showed up more in the Blood Orange Pu-erh. As for the ginger, a longer steep brings out the ginger taste. I think depending on how you steeped it, both cups could have been identical. Now I don’t have a side by side comparison, but it was just remarkably similar from memory.
Would be interesting to try side by side! I ordered both, maybe I’ll give that a try. Lol.
You ordered both!?!? Haha, would definitely be interesting, but uhhhh, that’s a lot of pu-erh to drink in a day ;)
Yeah, well, I’d have to start early and maybe only go through 4 or so steeps each. I don’t know what your experience has been with the Samovar pu erhs but I expected more steeps without significant flavor changes. I’ve read about pu erhs going for 20 or more steeps without a change in flavor. I only get about 5 out of each one and the fifth is already starting to get weak.

I am always up for sharing my tea with others. If you’re interested in something just let me know.
80+ Love it, needs to purchase more!
70-79 Pretty good, would consider another cup
