sipdown! ick. Still not a fan. This is overly artificial tasting and mango and strawberry are competing to heavily to take out the puerh and it just becomes a mess of icky. at least as far as i’m concerned. blech

i’m the first to comment on this one? excitement for the day…

this is a lovely puerh. i wouldn’t count it as a major player like some of verdant teas puerhs, but it has been explained to me that the highest quality teas are often NOT used in conjunction with flavour because the two would compete. (makes good sense to me).

one of the things that impressed me most about this was that it was tropical without using coconut or pineapple. while i love both, i don’t always want tea that reminds me of a pina colada. the strawberry and mango are very complimentary and very ‘warm season’: spring, summer, a cruise to someplace warm…

amber steep… as opposed to an earthy bread flavour in this instance the puerh gives more of a quiet pastry suggestion (i swear i do have thoughts that do not orient around desserts)…. as though this were a mango/strawberry danish.

haven’t tried a resteep but i will. not sure i will buy it for myself, but it was a lovely surprise in my swap package. again, thank you ShortSorceress!

The reviews on this one were split, so I wasn’t sure how it was going to go down, but I really liked it! Pu’erh is one of my favourite tea bases because of that earthy dark quality to it, and this was delicious with the fruit bits in. I don’t know if I’d go out of my way to restock it because we don’t generally like the Della Terra teas, and overall it’s a similar flavour profile to many other blends with berries and dried fruit. Long Life Oolong from Davids comes to mind. BUT as long as this bag lasts it will be well enjoyed!

I’m not big on flavoured pu’erh, I much prefer them straight.

This one isn’t getting much love on Steepster it seems, so I’ll be the outcast and say it: I like it a lot!!!

I probably like it cause it’s very lightly and subtly flavoured, the same reason I also like Dammann Frères Pu’erh Gourmand so much.

It’s nothing complicated, just a generic shou paired with strawberries and tropical fruits.

But it works well for a smooth afternoon cup, when you want to put your mind to rest and not think too much about what you’re going to write about it.

(Tea for the lazy!)

I would highly recommend this blend to anybody “scared” of pu’erh as this base is not overly earthy or leathery.

A perfectly decent cup!

gmathis

You sold me at tea for the lazy. Exactly :)

TheTeaFairy

Oh yes gmathis, teas for the lazy are such a necessity, and yet, we tend to forget to praise them :-(

I really hoped I would like this one, but I just…don’t. The flavors are too artificial, the pu-erh is too…earthy, and it’s just not my cup of tea. But the wife likes it, so I’ll have her work on drinking it down.
