This tea was yum. I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to given that it was a pu-erh. Yeah, yeah, I actually like pu-erh, it’s just still like an automatic response from me as I’ve said before.

I don’t taste any brine-y, fishy flavors from this (a good thing) and it’s not overly earthy (again, a good thing). Lovely notes of cinnamon, clove and ginger. The nutmeg isn’t as obvious as the other spices. It’s a warm and comforting tea – the spices are warming but not really ‘spicy.’

The pu-erh is a mellow tasting tea. I like the deep flavor of the pu-erh together with the rich, silky flavor of the caramel. That’s really nice. This is one I’d recommend to someone who thinks they don’t like pu-erh; this would be a nice intro to pu-erh.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
