I’m going to go against the crowd and say that I actually quite like this one. It’s nearly Christmas, it tastes of cinnamon…that makes it nearly perfect in my book. It’s a little bit simple, maybe, but it’s festive. It’s cheering up my work morning, that’s for sure!
My main complaint about this one is that it’s promoted as a pu’erh, but there doesn’t actually appear to be all that much pu’erh in the overall blend. It certainly doesn’t show up much in the flavour, other than as a mild background earthiness. According to the ingredients list, it also contains black tea as a base – more of that than the pu’erh, I suspect. Still, that’s okay, because I’m drinking this one for the cinnamon and not the pu’erh…I’ve plenty of those I could drink if that’s what I wanted.
I’m enjoying the flavour of this one, for the moment. I think the novelty will probably wear off after a couple of cups, but for right now it’s a sweet, strongly cinnamon blend, and very welcome pre-Christmas.
