Pu-erh Pistachio from Tea Bird Loose Teas

When I had the pleasure of visiting the Carolina Parakeet Tea and Gifts in Anderson, S.C., a few weeks ago, one of the teas I purchased to take home with me was this Pu-erh Pistachio. I have enjoyed pu-erh teas for years, and I like the distinctive earthy taste of them, but this is the first time I have come across flavored pu-erhs in a tea shop, so I had to try one.

This one consists of pu-erh tea, pistachio, natural flavoring, and rose petals (a surprise ingredient). It certainly makes for an attractive blend!

And I loved it! I could detect that earthiness I like in the pu-erh, but it was definitely moderated by the addition of the other flavors, and that made me like this pu-erh even more. I was so impressed by this tea that now I'm on the lookout for other flavored pu-erhs to try!


  1. That tea sounds like a very interesting combination of flavors! I have never sampled a puh-erh tea before, but now I just might be inspired to try one.

  2. Sounds interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever tried a pistachio tea.

  3. Amazing that a tea blend with puerh is made. I am so use to having it straight I can't even imagine. Interesting blend.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
