Normally I don’t buy Numi teas, but I’ve heard so much about this tea (both good and bad), that I had to try it. I’ve only recently gotten into drinking puerhs, and am very curious about this one. It smells like dark, unprocessed cocoa powder. The typical puerh scent is there, but I have to really try to smell it.
It tastes unbelievably good. I’m picking up on the nutmeg and the cinnamon, but they’re in the background and enhance the chocolate flavor. Chocolate is the strongest flavor next to the puerh. And the puerh is a rich, well-developed flavor. It’s very earthy and dark. There’s a hint of orange at the very end of the cup. I’m loving this!
