I notoriously dislike pu’erh tea, so I was leary – but I love chocolate and orange together. I really enjoyed this – it was rich and actually chocolaty, with the definite orange peel flavor. I saw someone compare it to the chocolate covered orange peel candy (which my son always gets me for every birthday because he knows I like it and he won’t steal that one), and I’d agree. It definitely is the drink version of that. It is earthy but pleasantly so, and definitely dark chocolate as opposed to milk or cocoa. I did pick out some of the chocolate chips from the steeping basket and put them directly in my cup. Added some rock sugar and this was enough to get me to avoid the chocolate doughnuts on the counter. (But now the tea is gone, and the doughnuts are not…)

Wife, mom of 2 crazy young kids (and 3 cats, if they count). Used to be a professional tree hugger, now I stay at home hobbit-like and teach the kids to love the trees. Also hobbit-like, I love reading, tea, second breakfasts, cooking and food in general, and gardens. (I can’t really say I love gardening since where I live, it’s too dratted hot for too much of the year to actually do it.) I am always on the search for a good flavored decaf black tea. Suggestions are more than welcome!

I tend to like my teas strong, so I use more than most people when I brew. Don’t be put off a tea because I say I used 4 tsp to brew 12 oz or something – that’s just me.

PS – Unlike a hobbit, my toes are not furry. I just feel the need to clarify.
