Now this is a Puerh I can drink. It’s smooth, earthy and sweet. It’s the sweet part that is really making this work for me. The coconut and cocoa make this really enjoyable. There is definitely a nutty taste mixed in with the sweetness. I’m just so happy to have a puerh that I can drink a full cup of, and am contemplating drinking more of! Thanks LauraR for sending this tea my way! I hope to try a few more infusions with these leaves and will report back.

Totally going to ask Lisa to get this one in at Cuppa!!

Meghann M

You should, I have a feeling you’d enjoy it. I will have to order more when I place my Art of Tea order. Can’t decide which company to order from first, Davids, art or Serendipitea.

Jaime

Well, I’ve got one in with RoT, Sanctuary T, and am working on one with David’s (emailing one of them back and forth since the site isn’t working for me for some reason). Plus got samples in the mail today…cupboard is so out of control right now.

Meghann M

Sounds like a fun cupboard. That’s a lot of orders to work through. But it’s fun. I’ve been trying to work on the samples I’ve been accumulating from the different swaps, hence me making 2 different teas at a time all day today. Trying to wait to place new orders until I’ve cleared either one samples box or made some space in the cupboard. Or a special comes along.

Jaime

Plus I bought 7 new ones at World Market on Friday. I’ve been trying to work through my samples, too. Especially since none of the samples/swaps I’ve got have been put in the cupboard on here. I’ve gotten through all but about 3 of the decaf samples. That counts as something, right?

Meghann M

That’s a good start. Oh, and I just added to your overflowing cupboard. A package is headed your way today. There are several adagio teas and some others from my cupboard you haven’t tried. Sorry to add to your sample stash :)

Jaime

I can see that you’re really sorry about that. ;-P

I’m really excited about the adagio teas. Not going to lie!!

LauraR

I really like the flavor profile on this one too….wish they make it with a plain black tea base. I am so fickle when it comes to puerh.

Thanks TeaBrat for the sample!!
This was… interesting. I really like the coconut part, that was nice. The puerh was ok, but dusty, like the dust you’d get in a horse pen. Not entirely unpleasant. I think a rinse might help.
Sadly, I didn’t notice any cacao. Where oh where are you, you cacao note?

Yvonne

Maybe the cacao found it’s way out of the leaf you used! :(

TeaBrat

yeah not too impressive, this one :-P

Indigobloom

Yvonne, good point!! I’ll take a look in the baggie.

Indigobloom

TeaBrat, I’m glad to have tried it!! :)

Art of Tea was having a free shipping special so I decided to indulge. I like the fact that the sample size teas all come in these cute adorable tins, about enough for 5-7 cups of tea. I haven’t been buying a lot of new teas lately, I have so many already so this was my big splurge for the month.

I decided to try this one first because I love coconut and I also love puerh! Most flavored puerhs leave me kind of nonplussed, so I had some reservations about this one. The aroma of the wet leaf is a bit funky, it reminds me of barnyard mixed with tropical air freshener.

Thankfully the flavor of it is a lot better than the smell. It’s an earthy shu with a prominent hazelnut and coconut taste. This is quite pleasant to sip on plain, but I admit I liked it better after adding some plain soymilk. That made it more creamy and dessert-like. This would also be fab with some coconut milk, huh? I might try a slightly longer steep next time because I found the consistency of it to be a bit “thin” even though I used about 2 tsps. of tea for an 8 oz. mug of water. Probably won’t rush out to buy any more of this, but will finish off the little tin I have. :)

Did you get your Art of Tea order already??? When did you place it? Mine hasn’t even shipped. I’m getting worried.

I certainly had my doubts about this one – as I generally do when it comes to Pu-erh. But the aroma did not smell earthy like I usually expect a pu-erh to smell, so this relieved some of those doubts. Once brewed, there is a subtle earthy quality to the aroma that mingles with the scents of chocolate and coconut. It’s a earthy, nutty, coconut and cacao kind of smell and it intrigues me.

I steeped this in my gaiwan and used my “usual” steep times for pu-erh – which is about 30 – 40 seconds. This was NOT enough time, and so I returned it to steep an additional 2 minutes. This was perfect.

The flavor is very nice. Mild for a pu-erh. An almost powdery kind of taste to the cocoa notes, like cocoa powder. The coconut is the most prominent flavor. The pu-erh base is mellow with smooth earthy notes.

If all pu-erh teas tasted this good, I would not be as hesitant to try them!

THANK YOU to Jaime for including this in my Secret Santa box!

When Meghann posted about this tea a while back, I knew I had to try it. On my next visit to Cuppa, I mentioned it to the owner. Lisa ordered some, and it came with her most recent delivery. I was going to buy an ounce, since I like playing with the steeping parameters on puerhs, but then I smelled it. I got two ounces, because I know this is going to be grand once I find that magical time/temp combination.

Seriously, this is one of those teas that has to be sniffed to be believed. Smells awesome dry, and the scent of the brewed cup is just as good. It smells like something baking…chocolate and coconut and sweet. No hint of that rather distinct puerh scent.

Still need to work on getting the time/temp right. This cup seems a bit watered down to me. Very sweet, and coconut is in the fore. The cacao is more in the background and aftertaste, and I’m not really getting any puerh taste. Will steep for 5 minutes next time around…not sure if I’ll resteep these leaves or not. But I can tell from this cup that it really is going to be mind-blowing once I find the time/temp that’s just right! For now, I’ll give it an 80…but that very well may change.
