Thanks for this one a while back, Ost! I think this is the third pu-erh based tea I’ve tried from Simple Loose Leaf. It seems to be the same one, not a bad pu-erh, not the best pu-erh. Mid level flavor though the color of the cup seems dark enough. There are a couple spices in the teaspoon and a half that went into the infuser (and orange peels) but I’m not sure they add too much to the flavor. I don’t know why! Not a bad cup but if I want a spicy pu-erh, then it better have spices in it. Not much more to say on this one.

Backlog:

My first infusion had a nice balance of sweet and spicy. The spices had a chai-like flavor to them and the pu-erh is mellow and smooth. It’s a little earthy but I thought that the earthiness worked because of the spices.

The second infusion, the spices were a little more mild than the first so this allowed me the chance to explore the tea a little more. It’s earthy, but I’m tasting more of a mushroom type of earthiness. I like that I’m not tasting brine or fishy.

The flavor was much deeper and smoother with the third infusion. I can really taste the rich, aged tea now. The spices have softened and are more of a background note, and I like the way they play with the molasses-y sweetness of the tea. It’s quite an enjoyable experience.

Mmm pu’er blend. This one is a moderate spiced, mostly sweet ginger cinnamon. The ripe pu’er is good – not fermenty and has a mushroom earth base with a creamy body.
Overall, pretty good. I’d upgrade all my chais to this, though I would like a more spicy chai.

Nothing says cool weather like teas that are spiced, at least in my humble opinion. This particular spicy blend is made from Pu’er, Cinnamon Bark, Natural Spice Flavor, Orange Peel, Ginger Root, Aniseed, and Safflower. The aroma of the dried leaves is a blend of orange spice, chai, and Christmas spices, it smells really good, if you are in to really strong spices and an underlying citrus and earthy notes! The aroma of the brewed tea is incredibly spicy, lots of cinnamon and ginger with a sharp note of orange and a rich earthiness. My tea area smells like Christmas, Christmas just always smells very spicy to me.

The taste is surprisingly sweet, not what I was expecting from a Pu’er, call me pleasantly surprised. It is a warm and tingly tea, like being wrapped up in a blanket fresh from the dryer, but inside of your stomach, it has a blend of bright orange and rich spices, with an earthy finish. The earthy notes from the pu’er give a heaviness to this tea, it makes me want to go sleep after drinking it.
