okayyy I know I reviewed this one before. I remember specifically commenting that it was pu-erh awesomeness because with some milk it tastes like melted chocolate strawberry icecream… or rather, strawberry chocolate milk. SO good. Three steeps of this baby and I still wanted MORE.
I’m a little annoyed now. Steepster ate my post :(
The strawberry doesn’t come out much at first. It’s rather mild… but give it a chance, it will build I promise! With milk, this outbids any other flavoured pu-erh I’ve ever tried. Without… ehhh, it’s ok. A little too weak. No matter, I don’t mind at all =D
This will be one to repurchase, no hesitation about that!

Bonnie

I covet this! Sounds so great!

Indigobloom

oh it is Bonnie, it really is… and it really solved my chocolate craving to!

momo

oh this sounds good. now I feel bad that I didn’t stop in one of their stores in Florida because I want this!

SimplyJenW

This sounds so reminiscent of Lupicia’s Chocolate Strawberry Pu’erh. I will give my comparison of the two very soon.

Amanda, I only have dregs left in my sample or else I’d send you some to try!
SimplyJen, ooh! I look forward to that!!

momo

It’s okay, I will be back there soon enough! I saw their prices online before I had left and thought it sounded crazy for like, an ounce of rooibos, but I did not even see this!

Bonnie

I found out that there is a branch at Pier 39 in San Francisco so I can ask my son to get this for me. Ha! You’ve got to milk the adult kids now and then…it’s good for them and he doesn’t have kids so…I’ll be his kid! (I just sent him tea samples so I’m not a bad mom)

Daniel Scott

Wow, the concept of a chocolate strawberry pu-erh is amazing.

Indigobloom

Amanda: I think this was new when I got there. When did you go?
Bonnie: LOL hey anything goes when it comes to keeping a good stock of tea! besides, it’s the best way to make a convert :P
Daniel Scott: it is so good. way better than the orange choco versions I’ve had!

Bonnie

I think you just TEAWITTERED Indigobloom (what kinda word is indigobloom…are you an oolong? )

Indigobloom

LOL I suppose I did! hehe
Indigo is my fave colour and bloom… well I was having a blooming tea when I chose it haha. Btw my real name is Adrienne!

Bonnie

That is a beautiful name…Adrienne with a cuppa tea in her hand…..

Indigobloom

Thank you Bonnie!! you are so kind.
I wish I had a cup now… but I’m about to hit the zzzs!

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
