As far as pu’erhs go, this is not bad. There is a nice caramel flavor. However it is still a pu’erh and though I enjoyed this the first time I had it, it has become clear that I am not really a pu’erh fan. For that reason alone I won’t be restocking this.

I hear you. Have never really been a fan of pu-erh either.

Sil

Its soooooooo good lol

VariaTEA

Wait, Sil. Are you saying this is good or pu’erh in general?

Sil

puerh. love it. can’t get enough of it. i’ve never tried this one but caramel/toffee + puerh sounds like win to me :)

VariaTEA

I really liked this initially. I guess I have come to realize that pu’erh is just not for me though.

Sil

yep…i hear you. that’s like me and greens, whites, most oolongs. I don’t hate them but i’d almost always rather drink a black or a puerh.

VariaTEA

I prefer blacks (and genmaicha). Although I keep some green, whites, and oolongs around for a bit of variety or for when the mood strikes.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
