thank you to MissB for this sample. this one was really interesting….

the dry leaf gives me a very straightforward ice wine grape scent. it changes once water is added it changes. a floral component chimes in…. one i can’t name…..not honey suckle, not hyacinth…. i’m prompted by H though, lol.

has a heavy presence, a syrup that gives a distinctly exotic weight. not sure it’s quite my thing, but a lovely thing to try.

on a side note: i DO believe that misfortune comes in threes, or i do now. so… the left eye a month ago, the left kidney 2 days ago, and a broken back left molar as of 30 minutes ago. huh. happy holidays? sigh.

Oh boo (for the tea). I have yet to try this. Floral is so not my thing. Huge hugs to you.

JustJames

it’s not strictly floral, and it’s just one guy’s appraisal. cold steep it…. try it that way to start?

Veronica

Good grief… I bet you’re going to be happy to see the backside of 2013! I hope things get better (much, much better) soon.

Don’t give up James, if trinity is the rule here, then it should also apply to the GOOD stuff…I wish many rounds of good things will also come to you in threes :-)

MissB

I will. Having said that… I have an awful lot of things like Nina’s Paris, Dammann Freres, and Fauchon in the house right now. ;)

JustJames

i like the concept of a three way reversal of this nonsense….. i can’t believe all this. BEYOND stupid. isn’t it true that we’re supposed to thrive in the face of adversity? i guess my final psych mark will be the barometer of that…..

soooo i figured while i’m enjoying a puerh, i’d take the opportunity to have a few of the flavoured teas missB sent me as a contrast against the straight puerh deliciousness.

Dry this one smells like grapes…sweet grapes. As it brewed, the scent became more floral, which of course worried me. However, drinking this, there is not floral to be found. It’s not quite a grape tea…i suppose if you used your imagination a bit, this could be like a weak icewine. It’s not a bad little tea and certainly better than the last icewine tea that i tried. This one actually comes closer to feeling like an icewine. My only complaint? Darlene’s teas tend to have a bit of a film to them that rest on top of the water. Thanks for this one missb! i’ll enjoy this cup :)

Bonnie

When I first started Steepster 2 years ago, almost nobody drank puerh. Really. Amy Oh and I did..one other maybe. Then gradually people began to try and liked it. What an amazing turn of events!

Sil

i love puerh! i just don’t always have the time to really sit and enjoy it :)

Thanks for the sample, MissB. :)

This smells quite grapey. Kind of like sweet wine but without the alcohol. I’m trying it without sugar or creamer first, as I feel that what I want to add would kill the flavour. I didn’t realize there was white tea in it (I noticed the different leaves, but it didn’t make it much further in my brain!), or I might have steeped at 185F, even.

Doop di do. Waiting for tea to cool is boring. This is why I like creamer!

Ok. This is pretty good, actually. Huh. It’s not wine, it’s definitely tea and sweet white grape juice. I’ll drink it, but I don’t think I’d purchase the flavour.
