I have yet to develop an appreciation for puerh. However, I do love sticky rice! And this little heart-shaped cakes were so adorable, I just had to give this one a try. And honestly, it was a pleasant surprise! The tea is a bit earthy, but it’s not musty or fishy like others that I’ve tried. The sticky rice really comes through in both the aroma and flavor and I love the unique umami flavor it gives to the tea. My only complaint is that I did find the aftertaste a bit drying to my throat. This probably isn’t something I’d purchase, but it was really fun to get to try it!

Flavors: Drying, Earth, Rice, Umami

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I’m the same with pu’erh — I want to do a deep dive, but it’s just too overwhelming haha! I’m glad this one was tasty!

I haven’t warmed up to plain puerh either, but do like it in certain blends, including this one. The “Dark Rose” hearts from TeaSource are also some of my favs!

May have to try those! Thanks for the tip.

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ~ C.S. Lewis

I was introduced to loose leaf tea by a roommate in 2012, but it wasn’t until I stumbled upon Steepster in 2014 that I discovered a world of tea that went beyond Teavana and the grocery store.

My tastes continue to evolve, but black tea is currently my favorite. I am especially drawn to strong, malty breakfast blends to wake me up in the morning and flavored dessert teas to sip throughout the day.

Just about everything in my cupboard is available to swap, so feel free to ask!
