drank Sunny Fruits Puer by Lupicia
761 tasting notes

From the SSTTB…though it’s on it’s second round, so maybe I should be doing SSTTB #2 like OMGsrsly, though this is my first crack at the box…I dunno.

I chose this one today because we had a dusting of snow overnight, and it was really cold this morning when I got up. But it was also sunny. So I opted to have a tropical yet hardy tea, and this is what I picked. I’ve kind of been waiting for the right time to have it.

This one tastes a bit like David’s old Aloha Pu Erh, but perhaps just a little different…a little less artificial? I also added milk to mine, as I pretty much do with all my shu pu erhs.

I like this, and I will have more, when the mood strikes, though it is not a love. It is a like. I agree with other reviewers that this is a good pu erh for newbies.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are…

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty (except rose), and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

Yes, I do trades…usually on request though. See something you want to try in my cupboard? Just shoot me a message and I’ll see what I can do!

Uh, guess that’s it.
