Still down with my head cold.
But guess what, I was right… this puerh is much better as a “sick tea”!
It’s so soothing and making me feel loads better, for the moment.
That sickly sweet note is now somehow refreshing. Bumping the rating just a little.

A huge HUGE thank you to Invader Zim for sending me a surprise box of tea for some teas I had sent to her previously. It was totally unexpected as I asked for nothing – practically demanded nothing in return! What a lovely surprise today in the mail!
I do not think I have ever had a tea from Spice and Tea Exchange so this is new for me and I am quite enjoying it!
A nice pu-erh base with some wonderful notes and of course peppermint and chai spices.
I am not even minding the licorice note!
I am going to play with this tea a bit and do a review on
Thank you Invader Zim :) Happy dance.

Invader Zim

I’m glad you’re enjoying your teas, I couldn’t let you send me some without getting any in return!


You are a sweetheart! VERY generous too! Thank you I am in the midst of doing a longer review right now and STILL enjoying this tea! :)

Invader Zim

Thank you! That tea is nice and brews several times very well!


It sure does! I am going for my fourth steep – will see how it does! :) Still I am very happy with the three so far!

Thanks to Azzrian for this tea:)

I have a mild like for peppermint, one of my favorite teas from Bigelow was Mint Medley. This tastes alot like it. It isn’t a ‘Wowzer’ of a tea, but it’s one that I won’t mind keeping in my cabinet. Luckily for me, there is a Spice and Tea Exchange nearby, like 15-20 minutes away. So I think I might soon go pick some up. Unfortunately though, this summer I’ll be moving and going to this one will be kind of difficult and it doesn’t look like they have any other locations here in Michigan. Ahh well.

I did not know this was a Pu-Erh. I had it when I was fifteen, and I remember the nice vanilla smell and really sweet taste. I thought that the earthier body and smell was because it was blended with a black tea-turns out I was wrong and it was a green Pu-Erh. It’s one of the few darker teas that I started to drink without cream and sugar because it was so rich, never mind the sugar was great with the peppermint. The Tea Spot Climber’s High is a lot like this one, but I prefer the taste of this one because of the peppermint next to the cinnamon and vanilla bean.

I enjoyed this. I didn’t necessarily agree with the ‘chai’ part of the name, simply adding cinnamon to a tea doesn’t make it a chai in my book. Sure, I know tea = chai but for me, chai = spices. Cinnamon isn’t enough to make this a chai for me.

That said, it’s still tasty. The pu-erh is smooth and earthy and mellow and I thought that the cinnamon and licorice root complemented the earthy notes of the pu-erh. The peppermint gave it a lovely freshness and the vanilla gave it a soft, creamy note.

An enjoyable pu-erh blend.

I’m not sure what I was expecting but this wasn’t really what I wanted right now. The flavor seemed odd with a bad aftertaste on the roof of my mouth.

I think I’ll try making it with some almond milk in a saucepan tomorrow. Maybe the flavor will blend for me with milk.
