AJRimmer, is this the kind that has some vanilla rooibos in it as well? Whether it does or doesn’t, I am especially thankful for the sample you sent my way!

First thing I noticed: It most definitely smells floury like Aunt Nancy’s homemade pie. She set the family gold standard of pecan pies with local pecans the size of your thumb. When I was little (6-ish), my big brother (14 years older) and I had a deal: We’d share a slice; he’d eat all the pecans and I’d get the goop and the crust, which we all know is the best part.

Steeped straight with no add-ins, there’s plenty of pecan flavor and scent (especially with bag left in the cup) but not a lot of syrupy goop. I think I may be able to fix that next time with a little milk.

The tin that I bought from them is just the pecan pie puerh without the other tea blended in! I’ve sampled their blends at their shops before but haven’t bought them yet! And I have a similar pie arrangement with my partner where I eat the pumpkin pie filling and leave the crust for him :P

OK, then it must be the dried safflower I’m looking at rather than rooibos. The scent, even of the cold dregs in my cup today, is wonderful!

I never buy puerh, but when I was at Old Barrel, the scent of this tea was irresistible. I have to say the flavor is much more muted than the scent. I can definitely taste the puerh – it’s not gross or anything, just unmistakable. Then there’s some nuttiness and an element that does slightly remind me of pastries. I wish this were on a black base and that the flavorings were a little stronger, but this is probably the best puerh I’ve had.

Wow. This sounds sensational.

AJRimmer

I’d be happy to send you some if you’d like!

gmathis

Ooh! Thank you! PM forthcoming.
