Thank you TeaBrat for sending me this sample! I am very curious about flavored pu-erh, and I have enjoyed the teas I’ve sampled from Nature’s Tea Leaf in the past, so I’m looking forward to giving this tea a try.
Well, this tea pulls no punches. I get the earthy taste of pu-erh and a burst of orange flavor. I’m not getting any other notes. Earth and orange. It works, and I’m enjoying my cup. I really like citrus flavored teas, but I also like how the deep earth note of the pu-erh keeps the orange from being too much. As the tea cools I keep trying to find a chocolate note in here even though there isn’t one. My mind is trying to pin this tea down as something it recognizes, but these flavor combinations are new to me in a good and interesting way. I’m grateful that TeaBrat gave me such a generous sample because I want to try this tea again.
