39 Tasting Notes
I infused this into a buttercream for the top of cinnamon-orange cupcakes. How fabulous! It’s also good to drink =P
Knocking the rating down a touch. I’m not nearly as fond of this late-autumn harvest. It’s still good but has more of the somewhat odd buckwheat flavor and less of the chocolate quality that made this tea so craveable for me.
i’m the first reviewer, whoop de dee~
this tea is finnicky (which i understand is a common trait in dancong). out of all my infusions i had one (which i believe was the second one, not counting the rinse) that was not bitter at all and tasted mind-blowingly delicious, like toasty oranges. i have to be more careful with this tea but it’s ridiculously good.
yeah, this tea is not for me. maybe pu’erh in general just isn’t for me. :(
I got this and hot lips while in Canada. To me this is sooo much better. it’s got a nice, earth base – but isn’t nearly as fishy as say, cofee pu’erh – and the cloves and orange add to the overall warming effect. thumbs up from me.
mmm, love this! I knew I had to try it as soon as I read the description. The flavors blend so nicely. Roses and coconut and licorice, who knew? and the chili thread are bringing the slightest warmth to my cheeks. This could be a nighttime tea for me.
this was definitely the biggest surprise from my advent calendar adventure (and am i ever late on writing this review haha)
chocolate is not really my thing, or so i thought. this tea changed my mind. it is yummy and smells like raspberries. raspberries are the best thing ever, the end.
i want to brew this in my fake-gaiwan and pretend it is like brewing it in a gourd. i’ll report back with my findings.
also, this was my Mug o’ Tea when I had to give a poetry reading that my english teacher somehow suckered me into. It’s delicious AND soothing. this one holds a good place in my heart.
