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. :)

I don’t know if this is the same as the Rishi Pu-erh Vanilla Mint as this does have peppermint. The package calls it Pu-erh Vanilla. I haven’t had pu-erh before much less with added flavors so I can’t tell much about the pu-erh flavor. It isn’t in a pressed cake so again I couldn’t judge the quality at all. The only time I smelled a pu-erh , it was rather musty and and unappealing to me. I decided to be bold and brave and try this one. (All of the above are disclaimers to let you know that I know nothing about this tea.)
It came loose leaf in a foil pack inside a box. Smelled good with the additional flavors added. Strongly vanilla in the first sniff. After brewing the liquor was very dark, almost like coffee. Drinking it I definitely sense the vanilla, with a nice light mint after taste. There might be a bit of licorice flavor but it seems well balanced with the mint so it is very unobtrusive. Very enjoyable tea. Energizing, but not like my beloved chocolate yerba mate. I will drink this tea easily and keep it in-stock. BTW, Is this supposed to be kept refrigerated?
