21 Tasting Notes
I’m a huge fan of pu-erh. I haven’t been a fan of flavored, especially fruit flavored ones in the past, such as teavanas strawberry slender that they served me once when I asked for pu-erh.. ugh. It was the worst tea I’ve ever had. I do, however, trust Robert ‘s taste for turning me onto pu-erh in the first place so I was interested to try this. I’m only on my first steep, but it’s a delightfully interesting blend of flavors. I think the orange and the pu-erh really work together in this.
HA! A person who doesn’t like flavoured pu erh but still think that orange is a good combination with pu erh! I’ve long held that opinion myself and now I feel so confirmed.
Certain flavors go well with puerh. Orange does well with most any tea in my opinion. However, my favorite flavors with a dark rich puerh are vanilla, caramel… lots of cream and sugar… or just strait!
interesting. This is my first Genmai cha. My first impression was good, but since it’s like nothing I’ve tasted, I will have to drink a few more cups to acquire a real taste for it. It’s still a strange substance, somewhere between rice cakes and green tea, but definitely likable.
That’s the way I like my chai too- although I do like it clean as well. If you like chocolate and cayenne, may I suggest 52teas Mayan Chocolate Chai?:)
