“Trying this again with sugar and milk just to see what happens. It’s a bit better – I’m getting spices and mint and richness, but I’m also getting a bit of a waxy white chocolate taste from...” Read full tasting note
“Everything about this tea should have pointed toward me enjoying it. Vanilla, yes. Mint, yes. Pu-erh, yes. Favorable-ish reviews on Steepster, yes. I should say at this point that something in this...” Read full tasting note

Description

Nomadic herders in Tibet and Bhutan have been boiling Pu-erh in Yak butter, milk and/or salt for centuries. On a whim, we tried preparing this amazing blend in milk and sugar, in a similar manner to our award-winning Rishi Masala Chai. We were astounded by the resulting flavors of this interesting new Chai; its deep vanilla hit, big body and strong tea taste and color are perfectly accented by cinnamon and sweetness. Tastes great infused like tea or cooked like Masala Chai.

Water: 212°F / Boiling / Leaves: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces / Infusion Time: 5–6 minutes / Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ Yunnan Pu-erh tea, Organic vanilla, Organic cinnamon, Organic Licorice Root. / Origin: Rishi Blend.
