Just received this today, so it is available. This is a pleasant pu-erh tea. Nothing too special, but very drinkable. Had a slightly different aroma to other pu-erh teas which have the damp wood in a basement smell. This had perhaps damp jeans or something in there too. Can’t put my finger on it, but I love using Mini Tuos for travel and will be taking these with me for when I want a pu-erh fix. I am not a big fan of pu-erh so I am steeping it quite fast. If you like to get a full bodied “liquor” see other reviews.

Can’t find my review to edit. Previously I said it was good. Then I had 2 more cups and realized it has a horrible sickly aftertaste. One cup was nice though. If you are sticking to that it is fine.

Exactly what I was expecting. A subtle oolong, so subtle the vanilla overpowers any of it’s flavours. Plus a nice vanilla taste. It will make nice alternative to their Creme Black tea which follows a similar formula with the flavor overtaking the tea. I buy straight oolong and other teas from China, so that is why I like this without any character from the tea leaves.

Delicious. I may be biased as I just threw out a tea I tasted which was bad, so it made me really appreciate this. It is quite light, creamy as you would expect and very pleasant to drink. Definitely will be in my next order if it comes back. I recommend a quick steep to avoid the astringency which has put some people off.

I thought I smelled peach at first, so was a little surprised with the smooth savoury flavour. It is a very pleasant tea. Kind of reminds me of comfort food- satisfying, tasty and very drinkable, without having an X factor. There is a slight after taste which I am unsure about.

Slightly bitter taste. Warming. Very savoury. Perhaps that is why I am the only one to dislike this tea. I prefer sweeter teas (like early grey and vanila black) and certainly don’t need a warning tea where I live. Not for me.

I have never tried this tea hot. I always have it cold when I don’t have time to make my own tisane. A tablespoon with about 2 liters of water is wonderfully refreshing and delicious. I think this is the best one out of 3 similar teas blends I tried. I continue filling up the pitcher with water and it gets weaker, but the longer it has to infuse the better, so it is best to start overnight.

First time I tried this it was little disappointing as cinnamon was the overwhelming taste. I am not sure if it aged or something, but when I next tried it a bout 3 months later it tasted more rounded, more like maple syrup. This is a tasty tea and if you notice what I did, leave it for a few months to see if that helps.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Maple Syrup

I was very unhappy with this tea and originally just gave it a score of 38. Sorry, I don’t recall the reasons why. I have just upped my score to 55 as it is not bad used as a cold water infusion.
