From DAVIDsTEA

Dark and nouveau-chic

It’s time to go retro and return this flavour to its rightful place as the Queen of Liqueurs. Are you ready to succumb to its charms? Our version is a rich, dark blend of organic pu’erh tea and peppermint, sweetened with all the creaminess of organic Madagascar vanilla, licorice and cinnamon. It’s as delicious as the original, only you can drink it everyday, all day. Now, that’s decadent.

Ingredients: Organic: Pu-erh (cooked, Shou type), cinnamon, peppermint, licorice root, vanilla bean.

They just couldn’t help themselves with the Weird Aftertaste extract.

My mint to be one had a really nasty aftertaste that reminded me of a bad pineapple… I threw it all out and was so very disappointed. Oh well there is always Read My Lips and White Chocolate Frost..

Mrs Scarry has been getting me to try many teas and I finally found one I like just to have them discontinue it. Ive tried the gambit of flavors from black,white,green,nuts,fruits, etc from this Davids Tea and loved this one the best. If anyone has suggestions of similar style taste,blends to come up with similar taste I would love to know! Thank you. EvS

This is a lovely tea served hot. Sometimes I will mix it with a little bit of any chocolate tea and it tastes like an after eight mint. Without chocolate, it tastes just like the filling. Its delicious!

I wasn’t sure of buying it because it kinda smells like mouthwash, but I got it anyway because I was curious. The creme de menthe flavour is definitely there, and I think that in order to enjoy the tea you have to really like that flavour. But because it has that huge hit of caffeine and refreshing mint it is a really great morning tea.

Honestly, I found this smelled and tasted like apples and cinnimon oatmeal. I certianly could find the cinnamon in the tea, though the mint from which it acquired its name appeared more lost, with only hints appearing. I would like this to take a more prominent place to suit the name.

Boiling 8 min or more

I first tried this in the summer as iced tea, and it was so good that I bought a bag immediately! Creamy and minty, it makes some refreshing iced tea!

Now that it’s winter, I don’t quite make this as much, but it’s delicious hot with milk added.

I don’t drink pu-erh normally, but this tea might change that. The minty refreshing taste of this beautiful tea is enough to convert me from my greens and whites. Really is a delicious brew and I’d recommend it.

I had version of this tea from a local tea store a while back and fell in love with the flavor. When I discovered this on Davids Tea I knew I had to buy some. It’s exactly how I remember it. I know some people don’t like some pu erh’s because they have a earthy taste, but the addition of mint and vanilla really help balance out the flavor. If you are used to black teas you really need to give this one a shot. All of that horrible astringency normally present in black teas is nowhere to be found in this pu erh. Nothing but a smooooooooooth cup of delicious tea.
