From teasenz

Smooth and fruity with an aroma of fresh oranges. A beautiful tea for the adventurous tea drinker. Pu erh leaves are aged in a hollowed-out wild orange, resulting in this masterpiece among teas. Simply a must-have for any pu erh tea collector.

Backlog:

I liked this. I enjoy how the tangerine peel imparts a hint of citrus into the tea without overwhelming it. I still get the deep, mellow flavor of the pu’erh with mild notes of citrus. A nice balance of bright, sunny orange-y notes with the earthiness of a pu-erh.

It’s a mellow tea with notes of caramel, sweet and smooth. Not a briny or fishy tasting tea. The tangerine is a lighter note than that of the tea, it’s just enough to add a touch of brightness to the cup.

It didn’t taste like pu erh nor citrus to me : the only thing I felt and smelled was a very smoky, almost burnt ‘aroma’.

I ordered and tried only one, and maybe I got ‘an old one’ or ‘the wrong batch’, but bottom line, it was as little enjoyable as a random tea bag : not good enough for the price.

I tried with and without the skin, 30 seconds as well as 3 minutes… It’s possible I didn’t prepare it right, but I really tried – and won’t try again.
Not this brand anyways.

Method: 1.5 tsp, 8 oz, 205 degrees, 1.5 min, Forlife brew in mug strainer

Dry Leaf Aroma: mildly earthy

Brewing Aroma: mushrooms and cinnamon

Flavor: mushrooms and dirt, with a hint of citrus so subdued, you repeatedly ask yourself if it’s really there. The mushrooms and dirt are also mild, but contrary to what you’d think, the tea is good. I’m not ready to trade in all my oolongs and profess my love for pu’erhs, but I thought this was a fun tea.

Trade ALL your oolong…What a sad thought.

SarsyPie

Never! I love them all dearly. I’m not sure if I could love any other teas as much. :)

TheTeaFairy

…Try drinking lots of mandala pu’erh for a while ;-)

boychik

That is what I thought until I tried the good one. I’m completely obsessed. You should try Mandala with their 50% off offerings

MzPriss

+1 for Mandala the sale is way too good to pass up – but it might have tipped me over the edge into a for real tea hoarding problem.

SarsyPie

Oh tea peeps, come on now. Ya’ll know I can’t resist a sale! I ordered some pu’er from Mandala DAYS ago. :p

I got the Temple Stairs b/c of The Tea Fairy’s lovely review, and I also ended up getting the Special Dark because of you, MzPriss.

So I hope you’re all happy with yourselves! LOL
