drank Scottish Caramel Pu-erh by beTeas
1128 tasting notes

A sample from whatshesaid and inspiration from Cameron B for a sipdown!

This one has far more scent than actual flavour, but the scent is really nice. It has that earthy (fishy-ish) scent, but very light, then a layer of a delicious baked butter scent over top.

The taste is a smooth black base that isn’t too thick with the subtlest hint of caramel, maybe toffee in the background. The caramel/toffee taste comes out more as it cools.

The world of pu’erhs is overwhelming to me, so I’m happy I had the opportunity to try this one!

Also, I’m excited to have crossed two things off my list today! A patient success story for my volunteer role and part A of an ecology assignment. Yay! Next up, another ecology assignment, a paper for peatlands, and a volunteer blog post. :)

Your school notes bring a smile. I studied conservation and wetland ecology.

I love that! I so rarely meet people who haven’t studied the same/something similar. Can I ask, do you work in a conservation or ecology field? :)

Bio

I live with my partner and our two bunnies: Callie and Ben, and two cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love straight and flavoured black teas and this is what I’m usually drinking.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs, whites, and subtly flavoured greens. Other teas I’m happy to try at least once!

Likes:
Raspberry, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, cacao/dark chocolate, honey, coconut, and chai spices. I’m open to other flavoured teas but they can’t be cloying or fake/candy like.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, flowers (rose and jasmine), and ginger (except in chai).

Flavours that can go either way:
Hibiscus, vanilla, and peach.
