Hi, I have only tried one so far and I love it. It's Toffee Caramel Pu'erh from Steeped Tea when I went to a Tea Festival here in Vancouver, Canada. I use this for guests when I want to introduce them to pu'erh and it's a crowd pleaser so far.

Puerh has so many ranges in flavors between shou and sheng that I think flavored puerh would mostly be used to mask the tea. I had a chocolate one years ago by Numi and thought it just tasted like 'chocolate' flavor so I felt I missed out on both the puerh taste and the chocolate taste that I prefer. It can be used to make puerh palatable to some at first, as LadyFortuna pointed out, but I don't care for it.

Just my opinion but I would steer clear of most flavored teas because they usually seem to be masking teas, not always but often. Then again, whatever is your cup of tea go for it!
