drank Pu-erh Chai by Golden Moon Tea
132 tasting notes

Ehh, this one is okay but nothing to write home about. I am already picky on my chai blends to start with since there are so many different variations out there and this one is mainly just cinnamon… a lot of cinnamon. The pu-erh wasn’t as nice and earthy as Golden Moons original Pu-erh, this reminds me more of fall leaves. Also due to all of the cinnamon this is a bit bitter from it and I can pick up on a light citrus note which I think is a bit weird in a chai, but to each their own! …This is just “ehh”, wouldn’t recommend anyone to go out and purchase this one.

UPDATE – after drinking this more as it cools the more I feel like I am gnawing on a cinnamon stick. Added some milk and honey and now it really reminds me of a cinnamon stick!

Bio

I am a tea enthusiast who is always looking to try a new tea, but my all time favorite is jasmine pearls…or anything with jasmine in it really. I also am a sushi fanatic and simply can’t live without it. Outside of my fanatasy world of all things tea and sushi I am an executive assistant, mother of 2 and personal taxi/maid and chef service for my little family.

But back to the tea!

I love Jasmine Pearls, just about any White Tea and then we have Pu-erh coming in last as my top three.

However, I still enjoy a good Earl Grey tea, the more bergamot the better! I have a fond place in my heart for Matcha, especially iced Matcha Lattes. Flavored green teas are always fun, but I tend to stay away from the overly grassy tasting ones… they always remind me of a wheatgrass shot!

It takes a special black tea to really win me over, for me I find that they all taste too much alike or tend to be too bitter at times; I think I am more so bored with them.

Oolongs are fairly new to me and I am finding that these are really good and they will probably end up making it as one of my top contenders!

Pu-erh I have yet to try; I am very curious, but a bit scared to try it… something about being aged in a cave just frightens me a bit, but I would like to try one in the very near future :-) Update – I have tried a few pu-erhs and I can’t get enough of them! While they are definitely an acquired taste they are lovely! This has now taken over rooibos in my top 3 teas of choice!
