Thank you Kirk for this sample. It’s long overdue for a review.

When it comes to Pu Erh buds I can take them or leave them, but I haven’t had them with any sort of fruit flavour before. I do like the sound of mixing them with strawberry. Plus this is my first Liquid Proust tea, though I have placed an order today for some. The blends sound wonderful!

In raw form this smells sweet and fruity, specifically strawberry (juicy) but also tart like cranberry. The blend is light and fluffy looking but I can confirm I spot the Pu Erh buds, marigold leaves and cornflower petals at a quick glance.

Once steeped a golden yellow liquid is produced that bares a tart berry scent with lemon.

Flavour wise the first few sips are lemony and slightly sour with a lingering sherbet effect after taste. The berry comes through behind the lemon but the blend itself is smooth and quite light. Also becomes sweeter for the after taste.

The flavours still remain true now I’m half way down the cup though it’s perhaps more of a medium strength at this point.

Overall I’m impressed. While it wasn’t berry enough for my personal liking I do like lemon and in balance it was rather pleasing. It got approval from my husband too. If anything this has increased my enthusiasm for receiving my order and trying more of what Liquid Proust has to offer.

Flavors: Berry, Lemon, Tart

Bio

I’m 30 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have six of my own called Cassie, Mr Sooty Pants,Ivory Ruby, Lady, Misty and Ollie.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
