rishivanillamintpuerhI have brewed this tea so many times and ways because I adore this blending of cinnamon, whispery peppermint and vanilla bean. My favourite parameters have been at boiling (212 Fahrenheit) for 4.5-5 minutes. Fair Trade Certified™, always a good thing to see. This tea comes from the Yunnan region of China, and a Pu-erh tea. An all organic ingredient line up features vanilla, peppermint, cinnamon and Licorice Root. While I feel like I am judging a book by its cover, all of these things seem like they would make an amazing tea.

The liqour is a deep mahogany red-brown colour that seems slightly murky, which I have come to expect from teas with directly added ingredients, such as the cinnamon. I will admit that I was skeptical at first of the mint in this tea. Most teas are simply dominated by an overwhelming minty flavour when mint is anywhere on their ingredient list. This tea made quite the impression on me because it was minty at the finish, but I didn't feel like I was shooting peppermint extract.

The taste was well rounded, full and made me feel like I was sitting in front of some fire. The fire could have been a summer bon fire blazing into the midnight blue sky with green and yellow lightning bugs zooming around. Or it could have been on a couch or rug in front of a hearth when the first winter snows begin to fall. Either way, its a warm mood tea, that is wonderful at any time. I dearly have enjoyed it and have made most of my tea drinking buddies try this one because it is so good.

deep reddish-black, opaque infusion with a cool peppermint note. Hand-chopped vanilla beans and fresh ground cinnamon Its lightly sweet flavor has accents of espresso and cacao.
