This one came as a sample with a Davids Tea order a while back, and I’ve been saving it for a cold day like this. I was a bit worried it would be too rank because I didn’t rinse it in case I ended up rinsing the flavouring out. Turns out I didn’t need to worry as this is quite a mild pu’erh, mildly earthy and dark without tasting like a mouthful of dirt or manure. The smell actually has caramel undertones though the flavour is mostly cocoa, though it’s not as chocolatey as Numi’s Chocolate Pu-erh. This tea however has a distinctly rich smoothness, perhaps from the addition of the coconut which is otherwise quite subtle.

I really enjoyed this tea, so it’s totally too bad that Davids Tea stop blending it. I voted for it a couple times when they were doing that Halloween Back From the Dead revival, but no luck. Ah well.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
