From Porto Rico Importing Co.

A blend of Chrysanthemum blossoms and Aged Pu-ehr Tea. Common to Cantonese restaurants, this tea is strong and fragrant. There is no better choice to wash down those dumplings and sticky buns.

This tea has a great story, so I must tell.

Visiting the Dragonfly Artisan Tea Cottage in Sylvania, Ohio was one of the most delightful things I have done in a long time. One of my good friends planned this trip as my 2011 Christmas present and we finally found the time to do it. The food was delightful and this was the tea we ordered to share. It is my first pu-erh tea and was pleasantly surprised about how much I loved it!! I couldn’t get enough :) It has a nice earthy flavor. I’m interested to try other pu-erhs to see how it compares. While we enjoyed our shared slice of baked today carrot cake, when tasting the tea, I could really taste the floral not of the chrysanthemum. Wow!! Complemented it so well.

Highlight of our experience there was the generosity of the owner who, when asked if I could purchase some of the delicious tea to take home, put about 3 ounces in a bag and gave it to me to take home (NOT purchase, but as a gift) along with a bamboo tea basket. WOW!

It just goes to show how amazing tea people are :)

I had this tea a while back at a lovely tea house where I had lunch, tea and dessert with a dear friend. The owner gave us some to take home and I am now reliving that wonderful day. While I don’t have the carrot cake to enjoy with the tea, I still really love the flavor. I have never had a Pu-erh tea or anything with chrysanthemum that I am aware of, but the combination was delightful: warm, spicy and slightly floral. I am going to resteep and find some kind of dessert yummy to enjoy it with…after I eat my dinner of course! ;)

Fast forward to now: ate my dinner, resteeped the tea…delish with warm apple pie. This tea is a perfect companion to sweet yummies!
