From California Tea House

If you are a Pu ‘erh fan, our new Marmalade Pu-Erh is going to be your new favorite. Think old school musky flavor with a touch of sweet and very mild bitters that preserved peaches, pineapple, lemon zest and licorice root extract can bring to the table, and I think you’ll agree – we hit the nail on the head with this marmalade tea. If you’re new to Pu ‘erh, I recommend you start with a very pure Pu ’erh like our Bird’s Nest and then try this Marmalade version so you will understand the flavor layers in each cup. This tea has an amazing aroma as well! Buy loose leaf marmalade tea with our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Use 1 teaspoon of Marmalade Pu-Erh to each cup of filtered or spring water at a full boil and steep for 5-8 minutes, although, steeping Pu ‘Erh for longer won’t stress the flavor of the tea, you could bruise the flavor of the orange preserves.

Sampler Sunday! I want to finish off my California Tea House samplers, so I pulled out my big ol’ teapot again and decided to brew up this tea as my afternoon pot while watching Japanese dorama with Todd. I have one more rooibos sample which I’ll probably brew up this evening.

When I cut open this sample, it smelled very heavily of orange peel/orange zest… which I suppose makes sense for something boasting itself as “marmalade” flavored. Interesting enough, oranges aren’t listed in the ingredients on the package… huh. It has preserved peaches, pineapples, lemon peel, and licorice, but smells a dead ringer for orange peel!

Brewed up, the earthy aroma of the pu-erh comes forward more strongly, but there is still a syrupy sweet fruity aroma of oranges and apricots wafting from the cup. The tea brews a nice, dark brown, and the flavor is very nice; I remember trying one of those pu-erhs stuffed in a tangerine once and it didn’t have a very strong orange flavor, it was more of a light, floral, orange blossom feel, while this is what my brain was expecting from the tangerine-stuff pu-erh — I’m getting a rich, earthy flavor, a bit like wet stone or minerals, and then a strong ripe orange note. There is definitely a stonefruit quality to the fruitiness, as the lingering flavor on the roof of my mouth tastes like apricot jelly rather than oranges. During the sip, though, the flavor is very citrus-forward. The tea has a very warming quality to it, as well.

So far, I’m really enjoying these California Tea House blends… but alas, they are another of those places that only sells in 4 oz. sizes. Siiiiiiigh. Tea shops, PUH-LEAZE, would it really be so hard to package 1 oz. and 2 oz. options as well?

Looking for a tasty puer blend? This one is up there. Not as good as Lupicia’s puer blend, but this Marmalade Puerh blend is better than Adagios and many others I’ve tried.

It is zesty, tangy citrus, just like a rindy marmalade, candied orange notes, hint of sweet licorice, with an earthy background of puer. The puer isn’t funky and the licorice is really subtle.

However, this is provided you steeped it well – this tea is fussy to brew. It weighs a lot, and if you overleaf you will get something too licorice and sludgy. Best is 6 grams, 10oz water, 3 minutes. No rinse.
