drank Pu-erh Cocoa-spice by Tealux
226 tasting notes

I don’t very often reach for flavoured tea’s anymore, my preference leans more toward tea straight up. But every once in a while I get a craving, so I do keep some around for when I want to change things up.

A couple of days ago I reorganized my tea cupboard, I came across an envelope that smelled sweet and very chocolaty. I found this sample inside along with another chocolate tea, that I received from JustJames a long time ago. Today I’m going to aim to sip down both samples.

This tea was the perfect choice for a miserable chilly, rainy day/week. It feels like warm weather is never gonna get here. The cocoa takes a back seat…it’s more in the aroma than in the flavour. I steeped it too long, but I thought it tasted ok. The heat from the chili was pretty prominent…and that I really liked that. But I love spicy food. There was a bit earthiness in the taste, but not so much that it bothered me.

I’m on my second cup, and when I’m done, that’ll be one of two done. Thanks JustJames for the sample!

Sounds tasty!

It doesn’t have the greatest reviews, but I like it. Seems to be cool weather tea.

I like pu-erh with ice-creamy flavors (chocolate, coconut, strawberry, etc.) Never thought about spice—but I can see how it would work!

My tea journey started in 2012, when a friend gifted me some loose leaf. I guess she thought I was drinking too much coffee. Blown away by the amazing flavours I immediately embraced the loose leaf tea. I still drink coffee, but my main choice of beverage is now tea.

My tea preferences are blacks, pu’erhs, oolongs and greens.
