Thanks to Ricky for a sample of this!

I was genuinely scared of this one, though I had no reason to be. The only other pu-erh I’ve tried was another Rishi one, their Pu-Erh Blood Orange, and it was really, really good. But I’ve been holding off on this one for awhile nonetheless.

I’m sad that I waited this long, because this is fantastic. The mint is the prominent smell, but the taste is a wonderful blend of mint, creaminess (from the vanilla), and cinnamon. There are some minor cocoa notes, too. I don’t really get any earthiness from the pu-erh, though.

Might at least buy a sample of this next time I make a Rishi order.

It’s been recommended that I try these 2 as well. I also want to try the strawberry one from Teavana. If you like chocolate you gotta try Numi’s Organic Chocolate Pu Erh. I had the bagged version, but it also comes in loose leaf.

@Cofftea Are you talking about Teavana’s Strawberry Slender? I’d definitely recommend it. It’s very good.

Cofftea

Yep. That’s it.
