Pu-erh Vanilla Mint has a deep reddish-black, opaque infusion with a cool peppermint note. Hand-chopped vanilla beans and fresh ground cinnamon give this blend a full, somewhat creamy body. Its lightly sweet flavor has accents of espresso and cacao. Tastes great infused like tea or prepared with milk and honey, like Masala Chai.
Indredients : Certified™ pu-erh tea,organic peppermint,organic cinnamon,organic vanilla,organic licorice root

My first Pu-erh blend Review by Elisabeth
This tea has a good balance of mint and vanilla. I did not need to add sweetener nor milk. This is a dessert tea where you can drink on its own or a nice accompaniment to chocolate desserts. (Posted on 14-01-19)
A nice pu-erh blend Review by Rachel
I really liked this blend. It’s definitely not my favorite pu-erh blend, but it’s not bad. I didn’t get the strong pu-erh taste. I was definitely getting the mint and vanilla. It was a very nice tea that didn’t need anything extra added to it, even though the instructions recommended adding milk and sugar to it a la chai.
I would recommend this to someone who didn’t like pu-erh that much, but wanted to drink it anyway for the strong health benefits. (Posted on 13-11-27)
Another dessert in a cup! Review by C B
Zen is quickly becoming a favorite! I wanted to try this one because I knew the flavor profile of a pu-erh is very giving to other flavors it is paired with… I thought the vanilla would be stronger here than with a black tea, for example! Also, I LOVE Zen’s Chocolate Mint Rooibos, surprisingly for the mint (usually not a mint fan.) I steeped for five minutes after waiting a couple minutes after it boiled. The steep color looks like a cuppa coffee! The most interesting thing about this one was seeing the tiny pieces of crushed vanilla bean around the rim of my cup and the slight crunchiness of it in my teeth! Yum! As I expected, the pu-erh is very generous to the flavors. I can smell the pu-erh more than I can taste it. Which is why I think I prefer black teas to pu-erh… I’d rather have that flavor kick of a black tea! But I think I have heard pu-erh has more caffeine? The most prominent is the mint with the vanilla making it taste like a minty ice cream. The little bit of cinnamon flavor helps smooth it out. With the second steep, the pu-erh flavor was more present. This is another scrumptious tea from Zen! Any tea fan needs to try Zen's blends. (Posted on 13-11-27)
