Sipdown! On the 16th day of December, my tea advent calendar gave to me… another citrus pu’erh? What the heck? I definitely was less a fan of this than Juicy Orange. Perhaps the licorice root is the problem. Either way, it tasted pu’erh-y and not citrussy enough to overwhelm that flavour; I recall these same feelings when I first tried it.

I’m confused what you mean by another citrus pu’erh. Was this from this year’s advent calendar? We definitely 100% do not carry this tea currently. I think the only pu’erh teas we currently have are Juicy Orange and Chocolate Orange (exclusively online, and in the advent). Chocolate Orange is in the advent this year, but juicy orange isn’t…

Hahaha, sorry – my husband made up an advent calendar for me using teas I already had. As luck would have it, he put both Juicy Orange and Blood Orange puerhs in! I was just sad since neither were favourites, and surprised he managed to put in two DT citrus puerhs (what were the odds?!)

Kittenna

What were the odds, especially considering my butt-ton of teas, from which one could probably make nearly 1000 unique calendars :D

Kittenna

*100. Sheesh. I’m not that crazy.

Roswell Strange

No worries! That makes a lot more sense ^^

Another discontinued tea from David’s that I have to get through to (hopefully) get my tea cupboard looking somewhat presentable. I imagine that this tea was probably succeeded by Juicy Orange, which is a tea I might consider picking up just to try. Fruity Pu’erh teas are a very strange ground for me because I don’t really associate fruit with the deep earthiness that comes with a Pu’erh base. That being said, I would consider Blood Orange a fruit with the right flavor to work well with a Pu’erh base.

Once steeped the tea got the typical dark brown color that comes with a Pu’erh and sadly it did also come with the fishy aroma that tends to be present with that base. However, it wasn’t as bad as what I smelled when I tried my Ginger Pu’erh. The taste itself is more pleasant to me, it has a full-bodied base with just enough blood orange flavor for it to be present, but not overpowering. I did add a bit of sugar later and I think it helped the orange come to the front a bit more.

Overall, I think that this is a decent tea hot, but I imagine that it was eventually replaced by Juicy Orange for a reason.

This is one of those teas that you need to drink room temp or cold in order to taste all the flavours. The citrus taste isn’t overwhelming at all but its there. Over all its a pretty smooth tea.

Flavors: Citrus Zest, Orange
