drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA
96 tasting notes

This stuff is absolutely divine. But this is coming from somebody who drank coffee before she drank tea. I now prefer the latter over the former but that’s not what this review is about – I’m pretty sure Davids has concocted some sort of incredible voodoo magic that has married these perfectly together. This is everything coffee should be. It’s so buttery and nutty, with just a touch of that sharp bitterness that coffee naturally has. I can detect very faint hints of cocoa in there somewhere.

Best way I could describe this? Coffee Crisp in liquid form. (And let me tell you, this is a wonderful thing in itself.)

Pu’erh is said to speed up your metabolism, so it’s I guess just safe to say not to drink it before bedtime. Plus the addition of the coffee beans…I think it’s giving me a little bit of a jolt. :P

Blacks seem to affect me caffeine-wise, however I can (usually) have a pu-erh at night and be just peachy still for sleep. This one however does have coffee beans in it as well… their Chocolate Orange (pu-erh) is also very tasty.

I absolutely love the Chocolate Orange – it was one of my first teas from Davids and also one of my favourites. Tastes like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

Bio

My name is Yvonne. I’m 20 and live in a snowy Canadian wasteland known as Manitoba.

I’m relatively new to the loose tea world, although I used to drink generic Red Rose tea constantly. A friend introduced me to a Teavana tea one chilly winter and I got myself slightly intrigued. Went to purchase it myself, used shoddy equipment to prepare it, and was discouraged.

Christmas 2013 rolled around, and despite having an awful holiday for other reasons, I received some of Teavana’s Cha Yen Thai as a gift after asking for chai tea. I went out and bought a proper infuser cup and was instantly hooked. Now my tea collection is steadily growing! I’m obsessed!

I like:
Dessert teas, black teas, oolong, rooibos, pu’erh, mate, chai, chamomile, chocolate, coconut, cinnamon, pineapple, tropical mixes, nutty, sweet, complex flavours, indulgent flavours

I do NOT like:
Green teas, herbal teas, white teas, teas too overbearing with fruit, pure tisane, cloyingly sweet teas, hibiscus, peanuts, burning my mouth

I am lactose intolerant (pretty severely, actually – I do not consume any dairy product) but I find that the miniscule amounts of dairy found in some teas don’t bother me for the most part.

100 – My absolute favourite teas. Without them, I will cry salty tears of despair.

99 – 95 – Cream of the crop, although missing SOMETHING to make them a perfect favourite. Not something I couldn’t possibly live without, but pretty darn close. Lots of teas in this category tend to reach 100 eventually.

95 – 75 – Yummy, but if it disappeared tomorrow I’d quietly mourn it for about 15 minutes and move on to a favourite. Leaves something to be desired.

75 – 50 – Passable, but not by much. Something I’d really have to be in the mood for to drink.

50 and lower – Nope nope nope. Not for me. Probably couldn’t or had a hard time finishing the cuppa. Doooown the sink.
