oh man! this one is delicious! blackberry and vanilla and delicious! I like that the puerh is still present in this one but it meshes nicely with the flavouring to complement the blackberry flavour without overpowering the vanilla. I feel like this would also make a really yummy hot brew, cooled as when it started to cool down a bit, the blackberry flavours really popped! Thanks for sharing dinosara!


Ooh that sounds neat!


oooh! The blackberry popped? I might have to order some of this!

I’m really enjoying this one tonight. It’s full of berry/vanilla goodness. The pu’erh is there but it’s more in the background adding depth rather than out front screaming “I’m a pu’erh”. I’m surprised at how well the blackberry is going with the pu’erh. I normally think pu’erh with cinnamon or with chocolate/coffee notes. This is a new experience, but one that I’m really liking.
Thanks Sil for another wonderful tea. I’ve had a really good day exploring some of the teas from your box. :))

This is the other flavored puerh that I got from Dammann/Instant Thé, besides Pu Erh Gourmand. The flavors on this one are blackberries and vanilla, with heliotrope (which is a flower, but I expect that it may be more for looks). The dry leaf smells very sweet and fruity, I’m going to say like blackberry jam.

Of course immediately upon the water hitting it, the puerh aroma really somes to the foreground. Definitely earthy woody puerh, much like the puerh in the Pu Erh Gourmand. I’m not sure whether my 2 minute steep time made a big difference relative to the Pu Erh Gourmand or not, but the woodiness of the puerh is less prominent in this one. It’s really quite nice. Rich, almost syrupy blackberry with smooth vanilla, and the puerh giving it a slight grounding, earthy tone. It’s really more evident in the aroma than the flavor. I’m not in love, but I’m glad I tried this one out because it is quite tasty.

Another 3 days of overindulgence for New Years, and now home again. I can’t believe it’s 1995 already, where DOES the time go?

I’m feeling the need for a) restorative; and b) digestion-friendly teas lately, as my stomach’s really suffering from so many days of eating the wrong foods. Pu erh usually settles me well, so I thought I’d give this one a go.

And yeah. YEAH. I sliiiiiiiiiiiightly worried about the marriage of pu erh and berry flavours, and when this brewed up and I got a strong whiff of dark, farmy pu erh goodness, my worry continued. But man. It’s nice. The initial aroma of earthy farm fragrance gives way to this juicy, almost jammy blackberry taste, and then transforms back into farmy, dark hay. How is this so good. Why is this so good? We just don’t know, but it is.

Thank you, Dinosara! This is SO delicious!

I totally oversteeped it because I was so excited about my mug that I forgot to set the timer. Oh yeah.

Love it. I also just followed you. :)


Haha. I barely post anything on Instagram. It’s just easier for tea pics. OMGsrslyfolks @ twitter.


I also rarely post on Instagram. Things have to be pretty amazing to make it there. But Twitter and Tumblr are the others I’m usually on. I can only juggle so many social medias!


Tumblr is a pit of fannish insanity. :)


Nice shot!


Great mug shot lol


The color of the inside of the mug is beautiful!


So ORANGE! Matched my traffic cone coloured scarf. :)
