30 Tasting Notes
Very average weak tea. Bricks need to be bigger as it loses strength immediately. Dusty cheap tasting puerh tea, with nothing unique. Useful if you might only want one or two cups and something cheap and basic will do. Certainly not unpleasant in any way. Just nothing to write home about. Has it’s use with it being mini bricks and cheap.
Awful. I have had one or maybe two decent cups from it. I have tried 2 or 3 times. Think it was the 1st real steep at 80 degrees, very quick. But repeating at same temperature was nasty and hotter was worse. What they say on the website is an understatement " Some bitterness and astringency " – it is pure bitterness and astringency. As they delete negative reviews it’s best to always check here.
Flavors: Astringent, Bitter
Just received this today, so it is available. This is a pleasant pu-erh tea. Nothing too special, but very drinkable. Had a slightly different aroma to other pu-erh teas which have the damp wood in a basement smell. This had perhaps damp jeans or something in there too. Can’t put my finger on it, but I love using Mini Tuos for travel and will be taking these with me for when I want a pu-erh fix. I am not a big fan of pu-erh so I am steeping it quite fast. If you like to get a full bodied “liquor” see other reviews.
Flavors: Wet Wood

Exactly what I was expecting. A subtle oolong, so subtle the vanilla overpowers any of it’s flavours. Plus a nice vanilla taste. It will make nice alternative to their Creme Black tea which follows a similar formula with the flavor overtaking the tea. I buy straight oolong and other teas from China, so that is why I like this without any character from the tea leaves.
Delicious. I may be biased as I just threw out a tea I tasted which was bad, so it made me really appreciate this. It is quite light, creamy as you would expect and very pleasant to drink. Definitely will be in my next order if it comes back. I recommend a quick steep to avoid the astringency which has put some people off.
