Thanks to Super Starling! for a sample of this.

For someone who very rarely drinks flavored/scented teas, I have to admit that I love the smell of this. Citrusy orange, rich chocolate, and earthy puerh are all evident in the scent of both the dry leaves and the steeped liquid. It almost has a children’s fairy tale scent to it. Something nostalgic. I’m not sure why that is what it evokes but it does.

On first sip, that orange chocolate hits you up front and then at the last second gives you a glipse of the puerh. I’m not sure if anyone has ever had candied orange peel? And further yet, I’m not sure if anyone else has ever had candied orange peel dipped in dark chocolate but this is what it reminds me of. It’s actually… pretty good. Coming from a purist like me, I’m a little shocked that I like it so.

So, congrats Leah. You have already partly converted me to being open to the world of flavored teas.

Michigander, Husband, father of three, lover of tea, books, nature, gardening, and passion. Stay at home dad currently. Previously a preschool teacher.

I have now completed some tea swaps and I am so totally up for swapping! What a cool way to connect with fellow tea lovers and try some new teas. My tea cupboard on here is woefully out of date though.

Black tea has been my go to tea for some time. Oolongs are good too but mainly roasty oolongs. I’m finding that there are some green and white teas (mostly Moonlight Whites) that impress me lately which they never used to do. I am getting into and developing a taste for Pu-erh. I have tried raw and my Ulcerative Colitis just can’t handle the roughness of it. So I stick to ripe Puerh. I am recently drinking more herbal tea or Rooibos especially STRONG ginger blends. I’m not too picky.

Some of my favorite places from which to purchase tea are Whispering Pines Tea Co, Verdant, A Quarter to Tea, Beautiful Taiwan Tea Co, Bitterleaf Tea, and Yunnan Sourcing.

Rating system:
90-100: Some of the best I’ve ever had. I’d be a fool not to keep it stocked as often as possible
80-89: A damn good tea. Not to be missed
70-79: A good tea but lacks the wow factor. More than likely a simple tea that could be an every day option
60-69: Eh. This is okay. Not swill by any means but fairly underwhelming.
50-59: Not really doing it for me. I’ll finish it but please don’t bring me any more.
Below 50: Life is too short to waste on things such as this
