This is my 4th tea from Persimmon Tree! These teas have been non-stop good! I am very excited to try this tea, I love Pu-erh teas – earthy yummyness!

OBSERVATIONS: Since all the Persimmon Tree teas I’ve tried have been in the mild, yet very flavorful range, I increased this tea to 2t (from 1.5t) for this infusion. Made a big difference I think!

DRY: Very creamy and chocolately. Big flakes of coconut in this tea!

STEEPED: In my steeper it looks a dark brown, poured into my cup the tea is BLACK. Smells like mouth watering chocolate and creamyness.

TASTE: Very creamy tea! Hints of chocolate and subtle earthy pu-erh in the background adding depth. The creamy coconut flavor coats the tongue and throat going down. No bitterness. The more I drink this tea, the more the creamyness comes out as coconutty. I tossed some lumps of rock sugar in and this tea tastes even more coconuty and desserty – like drinking a tea latte.

WHO’D INHALE THIS TEA AND NOT CARE THEY BURNT THEIR TONGUE: Dang, this one is hard. I guess the best would be to say for people who don’t mind coconut and tea latte lovers.

COMMENTS: This is the most creamy tea I ever drank (without adding milk)!
What sums up this tea: Tea Latte without milk or lots of sweetener. Also a big brain explosion on how this tea is so creamy tasting but is near pitch black, blindfolded I could almost think I added milk to it!

I love this tea and I know I need more of it!

However I’m eyeing Persimmon Trees “Coconut Creme” sample I have and wondering if it be similar (but in white tea) or with the fact it has the word “creme” in it, if it can top this Pu-erh Coconut Cacao. Stay tuned!

Profile

Bio

I’m a crafty knitter and crocheter that loves to work on a project and drink tea. I worked as a counsellor and I chain-drink tea to keep me calm and grounded.

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
Steep City Teas
Butiki Teas
DAVIDsTea
Della Terra Teas
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

I have a husband and a bunny who both hate tea. More for me!!!! MUUAHAHAHAHAAA
