Where East meets West – and all in one cup! Earthy Yunnan Pu’er, blended with the refreshing and lively essence of bergamot. Dark liquor, bright and invigorating taste.

OMGsrsly thank you so much for sharing some of this with me. Pu-erhs have always been favorites of mine, and even more so of late. An pu-erh EG? Wow. Okay, I’ll bite.

I actually love how these flavors blend together. There’s the depth and earthiness the pu-erh gives it, with the brightness of the bergamot. A really unusual cup, and one that I’ll savor.

soooo omgsrsly sent me a bunch of teas. And knowing that i need to try all the tea, she included this one, even though she knows i am NOT a fan of earl grey. Bergamot is awful.ick.gross. BUT i do like puerh. sooo i figured i should try this today and just be done with it haha. Turns out? this isn’t that bad. I really like the strength that the puerh gives to the brew and the bergamot isn’t terribly intense. That is, unless the cup cools too much…then it’s game over for me. For those who like EG, this is certainly a bit of a different twist on things.

Thanks omgsrsly! :)

Thanks to OMGsrsly for a sample of this one as well. She offered an EG puerh and I accepted even though I’m not big on puerh. You never know, right?

The dry leaf smelled mostly like strong bergamot, so it was promising. Then I brewed it, and a rush of shu puerh (“poo-erh” for Sil :) aroma came out of the tea pot. Earth, dirt, mustiness, wood. And bergamot. Hmmm.

I have to say, the flavor is better than the aroma for me. Pretty smooth, the bergamot is strong enough to stand up to the wood and earth. Not entirely my bag, but better than I thought it would be from the scent. Glad I tried it out, and know that not even bergamot can save puerh for me. :)

So. Weird.

Really.

I had to add a little sugar. No (non-dairy) milk this time.

Just odd. Yet, I think I really like it.
