All of these lovely teas I got from The Green Tea House are from a friend who lives in the local area of the store. She offered to grab me some I was interested in when she sent me a couple of her favourites, so of course I excitedly chose some. Because I’ve had mostly bad experiences with pu’erh, I thought this was a great time to try one from a place that I wouldn’t normally have access to, and that seemed to have good ingredients.

As a pu’erh, this is probably a decent starter tea to try it. I say that because I didn’t notice until after I brewed it, but it’s half green leaves. Because of this I didn’t notice much of any of the usual pu’erh characteristics, good or bad. There was a bit more earthiness and body to the tea than there would have been if it was purely green, but I definitely felt like this fits more into a green family.

Tastewise there are raspberry notes, most definitely, however they seem fairly generic, even once the cup is cold and drank as an iced. Overall it isn’t a bad tea, but there was nothing about it to make it stand out for me, either.

Snagged a sample of this from Tina S. ages ago and finally dug it out of our sample boxes. Definitely more of a green than a pu’erh; in fact, very little ‘tea’ flavour at all, even for a mellow green. None of the usual earthiness of a pu’erh. As for the raspberry, it was more of a generic fruitiness, but almost sickly sweet. Left a feeling in my mouth like I was drinking perfume. Sorry, darling Tina, love you but do not love this tea.
