Thanks so much, NayLynn for this one a while ago! I love pu-erh blends. This one is especially delicious with tons of mint, vanilla and cinnamon. Apparently there should also be cocoa shells, but I don’t taste those at all. The description also mentions cocoa shells but I don’t find those at all… maybe they are hiding within the flavor of the pu-erh itself. But there are multiple Rishi pu-erh and mint blends listed on Steepster so maybe I’m confused as to which is which. There is a ton of mint present but the pu-erh is also very deep and dark with two teaspoons. Mostly mint again with this blend like yesterday (a spicy pu-erh rather than a spicy green) but I love this one! Dark pu-erh but with refreshing mint is a lovely combination.
Steep #1 // 2 teaspoons for a full mug// few minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // few minutes after boiling // 4-5 minute steep

Not sure about the pu, but mint, vanilla & cinnamon sound good. :)

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
