drank Caramel Pu Erh by Tea Desire
296 tasting notes

Yet another sample from Roswell Strange!

I sometimes get a smooth, creamy caramel note from a few shou puerhs from time to time, so it seems like this is quite the fitting flavoring for this type of tea. There are large happy chunks of caramel in this blend that do make for some interesting sludge in my infuser of choice, but this tea is so delicious, that I don’t mind the cleanup.

The first steeping is so sweet and creamy. The caramel is definitely prominent here. the earthy and damp-mossy puerh was a background flavor to the sweet richness of the caramel. The earthiness of the puerh came out in the second steep. Man, this is a really good tea! It is perfect for those who are trying puerh for the first time, or have had it in the past and though that it just was not for them. Thanks Ros! This was a great sample. It’s really cheap for 50g on their website, so I may just need to grab a some to fill my sweet tooth every once in awhile.

I dream in tea.

My name is Maddi. I like to take boiling hot showers and meditate in my closet. I think and talk about tea so much that it has become a punchline of sorts with my family and coworkers. Besides my unhealthy obsession with the drink that gives me life, I do yoga frequently, I make green smoothies out of any vegetables and fruit in the nearest vicinity, I am obsessed with Korean Dramas, I run as a form of moving meditation, and play video games with my easygoing and forgiving boyfriend. I used to cook for a living, and I almost always eat at least one waffle a day.

Favorite types of teas:
Aged Oolongs hold my heart. Sneaking their way in are Korean Greens. Roasted oolongs and I are not on speaking terms as of late. Black teas of all types, but especially Fujian and some Yunnan are nice indulgences more often than not. I know and love Japanese greens more than any kind, while Chinese greens bore me. Certain White teas thrill me, but most have me changing the channel. I love using my Yerba Mate gourd, we have become steadfast amigos. Puerh and I are still getting to know each other, and while sheng is playing hard to get, shou is there to hold my hand when no one is looking. I sometimes make my own functional herbal blends, and if there is a hell, it is filled with Rooibos. Above all else, direct – trade tea is my favorite.

LEAST Favorite Flavors/Flavorings
Herbs, if they are out of place (I’m talking to you, thyme)
Strong Bergamot
Chocolate (added flavorings)
Cloves/strong cinnamon

MOST Adored Flavor Profiles
Majority of chai
Stone fruit/melon

First you heat the water.
Then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know.”
