Refreshing, nicely composed marriage of puerh, orange and ginger. The dry tea smells more of ginger but it is really more of a complement to the others once brewed… a mild little kick at the end. The puerh is lighter-bodied than the typical dark, earthy varieties I’ve explored, and the orange further contributes to this lighter palate. No trace of the sea-flavors that some dislike.

Is this the RISHI Brand from Wegmans

Jude

No company was listed on the bulk tea tin or the printed label, but it could be Rishi since that’s one of their (3?) suppliers. I emailed Wegman’s requesting a listing of who produces which of their teas. If I find out it’s Rishi I’ll relocate this post accordinly.

I think it would be good to have under Wegman’s too because I know other people search for Wegman’s Stuff…that’s what I do anyways…if I know it by another name I list it in my review notes! I think you are fine with either/or/both

I purchased this tea on a whim while at Wegmans. I kind of regret only buying $0.84 worth! I normally don’t drink pu-erh because it reminds me of drinking dirt, but this one was fairly nice. I taste the orange when it hits my tongue, but it’s the ginger that’s the predominant flavor in this tea. It goes down spicy and warms the throat. It’s good for the morning but I also found it excellent after a large meal or if I was feeling under the weather.

Wegman’s RULES! :P

I can spend hours there! I read that they use loose leaf teas from Ito EN, Rishi, and Republic of Tea.

When I first began drinking loose leaf, this was a staple in my collection! Over time, though, my opinion of it has changed quite a bit. After drinking more high-quality teas, I could no longer ignore the ‘fishy’ smell and lack of depth to the pu’erh itself. The ginger flavor is a bit overpowering, and I’ve yet to detect any trace of orange. It was always a welcome treat on cold winter mornings, though!

First Infusion (I will try numerous): On the nose, a very distinct “barnyard” and “sea water” scent with hints of fruit. The taste is lighter and fruitier with ginger mildly in the background. I bought only .02lb worth, and right now I’m not sure I’d buy more.

UPDATE: After subsequent steeps, the aroma and flavor remained the same. And I have decided that the mixture of wet hay and fishiness is just not appetizing to me. I’ll try some other pu-erh, but this was not a winner for me.

Made this tea in a press-pot, came out quite wonderful. Very aromatic.

I really liked this tea because I felt like it was a great morning tea. You can’t really taste the “orange” flavor too well in it, but the ginger and orange combination really makes it a really nice blend.
