Rishi Tea Vanilla Mint Organic Pu-erh


Rishi lists the ingredients of this tea as including organic pu-erh tea, organic vanilla, organic peppermint, organic cinnamon and organic licorice root. I was a bit nervous about the licorice as I had yet to try a tea with it that I liked. The dry leaves were a colorful mix of black, green, brown and yellow. The aroma was truly enticing, sweet and minty at the same time. I steeped it in Rishi’s new Tsuki Tea Pot using boiling water for five minutes. The liquor was a deep brown color.

All I can say about this tea is yum. The flavors of the different ingredients are blended perfectly. It was not too sweet and not too spicy. It gets even better once it has had a chance too cool a bit. The mint give it such a nice, clean aftertaste. Vanilla and mint are two of my favorite flavors and I never realized how well they complimented each other until this tea. This is one tea that will be a regular in my cupboard. I would definitely recommend this tea.
