Sipdown!! (198)

As far as pu’erhs go, this is not bad. There is a nice caramel flavor. However it is still a pu’erh and though I enjoyed this the first time I had it, it has become clear that I am not really a pu’erh fan. For that reason alone I won’t be restocking this.

I hear you. Have never really been a fan of pu-erh either.

Sil

Its soooooooo good lol

VariaTEA

Wait, Sil. Are you saying this is good or pu’erh in general?

Sil

puerh. love it. can’t get enough of it. i’ve never tried this one but caramel/toffee + puerh sounds like win to me :)

VariaTEA

I really liked this initially. I guess I have come to realize that pu’erh is just not for me though.

Sil

yep…i hear you. that’s like me and greens, whites, most oolongs. I don’t hate them but i’d almost always rather drink a black or a puerh.

VariaTEA

I prefer blacks (and genmaicha). Although I keep some green, whites, and oolongs around for a bit of variety or for when the mood strikes.

this sample fell off my table, so it wasn’t added to my cupboard, but now it’s all finished! I have to say that the caramel toffee puerh from majesteas here in toronto is more up my alley. This one is decent enough, but lacking the deep, rich creamy taste that i love blending with my puerh. Still good to compare though, so thanks a bunch Variatea!

VariaTEA

This also was not as popular as Tea Desire’s take on Caramel Pu’erh. It is always fun to try though.

Trying to review, comment, post and reply to messages tonight has proved too much for me. Or perhaps Steepster has decided to give me the cold shoulder tonight. Again. ;) Regardless, I’m around, just unable to do much of anything at the moment. I will reply/like/comment as I’m able!

Tried this one tonight thanks to VariaTEA who sent this out in a swap about a month ago now. I’ve been raving about Tea Desire’s caramel pu-erh so she graciously reminded me I had this one waiting to try out, too.

This is definitely a stronger tasting pu-erh, although that may just be because of the steeping parameters (1.5 tsp per 8 ounce cup). Initially, the caramel tasted… granular. I do mean taste instead of feel, and I’m finding it a bit challenging to explain. About half way through the cup now, I’m getting more of a cloying caramel note, with a darker, deeper, dryer pu-erh note in the background. I want to love this… I mean, I devour Tea Desire’s version almost daily now, so anything comparable is welcome. I think, in part, the tea feels a bit thin (odd for a pu-erh), and then the caramel used (perhaps flavoring, perhaps the tiny pieces in the brew) seems artificial.

I am sorry you took a break from your beloved Caramel Pu’erh to have this disappointing cup. I tried this one first so perhaps that is why I was more okay with it. Though the Tea Desire tea is definitely superior.

Also, there isn’t anything artificial in the blend, the company is all natural. So perhaps iris the caramel pieces that taste off??

MissB

I’m really happy to try it, and really grateful that you sent it. :) It’s likely the pieces, and just my tastebuds tonight. I’m a bit tired and have been sleeping weird with this stomach thing on and off, so that’s likely it.

Steepster is having crazy server issues. I thought it might be local, and emailed them about it, got a nice note back from Jason that it was on their end. Poor guy sounded frazzled.

Backlog & Sipdown (78)

I forgot to log this when I drank it yesterday. I was completely distracted by the fact that this was puerh. I didn’t read the description well enough I guess. So, my mind basically went. Wait, puerh? Puerh? Hmm, still puerh. I was stuck in a loop. And that was my first cup.

Happily the second cup was much better as I was able to actually think about it. And it was pretty tasty. It was dark and woodsy/earthy like a puerh with the caramel notes mixed with it – it wasn’t like a puerh from Davidstea where the flavouring is so strong you wonder what the base is. Instead this is fully in your face puerh, with flavouing to ENHANCE those notes. It was really quite good, and (as VariaTEA) had hoped, makes me curious about trying more from CaesarsTea.

Thanks for the sample VariaTEA!

VariaTEA

Yay! I liked the second steep of this better as well. I am glad you enjoyed it once you got past the shocking taste of pu’erh.

Cavocorax

Hahah. I can’t believe how much it confused me. I was pretty sleepy that night, but … still? :p

Sipdown #1, woohoo!! Just had to mark the occasion. See other tasting note for how I feel about this tea. ;-)

VariaTEA

Congrats on your first sipdown!!

I am curious as to how you came upon this tea though? I wonder if perhaps someone I sent this to passed it along to you. It is always fun to see how teas travel.

TraceyC

I received it in my mystery pack from MissB. It was the first Caesars Tea I have tried. I’m going to have to try more of their tea.

VariaTEA

It is a company local to me. It is pretty funny that you got it from MissB as I originally sent this to her. It is amazing how something from a small shop in Montreal can travel to BC and then to California. I just love how steepster works!
