Received this as part of a sampler.

It smells…indulgent. I’m very curious to see how pu-erh will function as a chai base – I’ve had black and oolong (both were quite satisfactory), but this will be a first.

On a side note, I’ve been experimenting with making low-carb blueberry muffins…and (objectively speaking) they’re really quite terrible. I don’t know why I’m this bad at muffins – I can make biscuits for days, but my muffins are always just sweet biscuits with blueberries in. Sweet, gritty biscuits. :/

As to the tea? I’m not sure I enjoy pu erh as a base for sweetness; it just comes across as slightly discordant. There was mild chocolate and graham, but the chai was a quiet backnote…which wasn’t what I was expecting at all.

I have enough for one more brew, so I’m going to try it again with different expectations later.

Self-employed, sleep deprived and always on the go.

Trying to cut down on caffeine – trying being the operative word – but I’m generally an Earl Grey drinker with a strong aversion to coconut, jasmine and chocolate in my tea.

I brew almost exclusively Western style, unsweetened.

If you see something in my cupboard and want to try it, hit me up – I’m always down to sell/trade samples
