drank Coconut Cacao Puerh by Art of Tea
4825 tasting notes

I certainly had my doubts about this one – as I generally do when it comes to Pu-erh. But the aroma did not smell earthy like I usually expect a pu-erh to smell, so this relieved some of those doubts. Once brewed, there is a subtle earthy quality to the aroma that mingles with the scents of chocolate and coconut. It’s a earthy, nutty, coconut and cacao kind of smell and it intrigues me.

I steeped this in my gaiwan and used my “usual” steep times for pu-erh – which is about 30 – 40 seconds. This was NOT enough time, and so I returned it to steep an additional 2 minutes. This was perfect.

The flavor is very nice. Mild for a pu-erh. An almost powdery kind of taste to the cocoa notes, like cocoa powder. The coconut is the most prominent flavor. The pu-erh base is mellow with smooth earthy notes.

If all pu-erh teas tasted this good, I would not be as hesitant to try them!

THANK YOU to Jaime for including this in my Secret Santa box!

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
