Cold, which was a poor choice considering the weather.

I’m realizing this pu’erh really isn’t as good as I first thought, but it’s pu’erh, and (to change my own quote) “mediocre pu’erh is better than no pu’erh at all.”

Fairly decent pu’erh. Definitely not as good as some I’ve been drinking recently (see my tealog).

Nose: berries and hickory smoke
Taste: berries on the front end, add a hint of hickory smoke on the midpallete, and the finish moves on to a grilled meat type flavor

Also don’t know why the box says caffeine free, since mate has about 50% the caffeine of coffee: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yerba_mate

It tastes more like carob than chocolate to me. The bag yields a fairly weak cup; a little tastier once I added almond milk, but still wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase this. Would be better if the bags were filled with more than a scant 1 1/2 teaspoons. Next time I’ll use 2 bags.
