From DAVIDsTEA

Ancient avant-garde

Pu’erh has come a long way since its heyday as a tribute tea to Chinese emperors a thousand years back. It’s still got that legendary taste, but the new “cooked” varieties are really something special. Our blend helps mark this milestone by combining pu’erh with coffee beans, chocolate, caramel and almond flavour. Even your coffee-addict friends will go crazy for it. (MK Kosher)

Ingredients: Chinese cooked pu’erh tea, coffee beans, artificial and natural flavouring*.

I haven’t met a tea I dislike more. Bitter coffee, fishy pu’erh, and mixed sweet flavors. I tried it straight, with sugar, with milk, with agave, with combinations thereof.. and I just flat out can’t find any enjoyment in this one. Yick!

LOL I LOVE this tea……..

Nightshifter

Lol, sorry Dexter. :)

Dexter3657

Is ok, I still find it fascinating how different people perceive different teas.

Nightshifter

I also try note to rate based on whether I like something or not, but I can’t even separate notes here. I just get a mess that is sweet and fishy with a bitter ending. :/ I appreciate that others like this though!

Nightshifter

*note=not :)

Thanks RogersCK! Mmm coffee.. you can really taste the puerh in this. Very earthy. The coffee flavor comes through behind the puerh and makes for a decent blend. The coffee adds it’s own earthy note. There is a subtle caramel sweetness to it, too. I enjoyed this one :)

Weeeird. Good? Interesting. I don’t know, guys. Strange stuff. Was v unsure about coffee flavoured tea (dnw watery coffee!) but this was very flavourful. I understand why people call pu-erh “fishy” becuse, uh huh. But it’s not bad? It sounds like it should be, it smells like it should be but I don’t know, it’s kinda homey and mellow and soft…… and I’m absolutely boggled as to how to rate it. Resteeped it, still boggled.

Cavocorax

Haha. Pu’erh sounds so weird! I’m nervous to try mine.

Kittenna

Yeeaaah, I found this one to be rather strange. Or was it the Coffee Chai?? checks

Kittenna

Yup, nevermind, I have some of this but haven’t tried it yet. Stay away from the Coffee Chai IMO.

Ozli

Haha, good to know! Coffee chai does sound like something I’m unlikely to buy though :D

Yeah, idk about pu’erh… I’m intrigued, though.

Mmmmmm, warm and cozy, this is!

The dry leaf on this one definitely is stronger and sweeter than when brewed, though I think that is generally pretty normal. But steeped, it was rich and earthy with a bit of sweetness. As I tend to do with my darker teas (and oh boy is this dark!) I added milk and sugar. I sent a picture to my friend who also go this with me last night, and without anything, it really does look like it could be coffee. I bet it is one awesome latte. :)

This one has potential to be restocked when my 20g bag is up. I’m not sure if I like this better, equal, or not quite as much as compared to Oh Christmas Treat/Chocolate Orange, but I do like it for sure.

MegWesley

This sounds interesting. I’ve never had a pu-erh yet, but I was interested ever since I heard about it. So, is this one coffee flavored? Or just really dark?

Amariel

It is pretty dark and rich with a hint of coffee, but also a sweet caramel it toffee note as well. I cannot recall offhand if it has chocolate or not as wellI, but it is really nice to me.

Strange — but delicious. Wow. I dared myself to order this one, because my first reaction to the ad copy was ‘Blech! That sounds terrible!’ But it’s not. Deep, a bit sweet, almost heavy. No astringency. No maltiness (oh my, imagine coffee beans with Assam: hurl!). Just one delicious fusion, straight out of The Tempest: ‘Has suffered a sea-change into something rich and strange.’ Want to try this one with a bit of stevia later. Would probably stand up nicely to milk.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

This was the ‘Tea of the Day’ today and I gave it a shot. I’ll be the first to admit that I have a bad habit of over steeping teas in the hey-I-need-to-let-this-sit-for-three-minutes-oh-look-a-bird! way, so when I made it at home it was a bit too earthy. The little sip I had today though, was delicious!

Michelle Butler Hallett

I over-steep all the time, too, either I get distracted or I just plain forget. Sometimes I set a timer … when I remember. :)

I steeped this one again today, 3 minutes, half a pack of stevia … wow. Like anything pu-ehr based that I try, the more I sip it, the more I like it.

I find if I over-steep pu-ehr it upsets my stomach.

Paul M Tracy

I just recently stumbled across DAVIDsTEA online. Unlike your reaction, I read the description for this tea (two coffee bean extracts, chocolate, caramel and almond) and thought “yum.” I’m looking forward to trying this one and I’ll keep your steeping instructions in mind.

Michelle Butler Hallett

Hi, Paul. They’re hardly instructions, just a note of what worked for me.

I came to David’s Tea online, too.

Michelle Butler Hallett

One of my cats went nuts when I opened the packet of Coffee Pu’ehr this morning. She loves the scent of it.

Prefer this iced, 100%

For any coffee lovers: My coworkers LOOOOVES this tea (of course, now she wrongly assumed all puerh tastes like coffee, luckily I gave her a taste of a few other puerhs from Davids before she spent all her money. I’ll have to bring her some Jerry Ma samples for a better idea!! :) )

Great flavoured puerh, but careful of the steep time. I actually find this one benefits from a rinse! About 3-5 seconds of a rinse and all fishiness disappears for me. It’s a lot more earthy as a result, but I don’t mind.

TeaBrat

i’ve heard you should always give pu-erhs a quick rinse b4 steeping.

DaisyChubb

I believe it for sure, I haven’t quite mastered how to do it at work, but I’m working on it haha :D

This was my Superbowl drink (ok I can’t drink alcohol with my migraines) so I had a STRONG brewed latte….soooo yummy good…that I almost (not quite) felt guilty that I didn’t watch the game but had recorded it…and fast forwarded to watch only all the commercials! Now that’s a SUPERBOWL and a CUPPA Pu’erh HOORAH! Mocha, coffee, caramel, a bit stinky…ummmmm

TheTeaFairy

I have tried many, many teas from DT, but this is one I always end up not buying…Probably cause I have yet to find a puerh I really enjoy. I think I’m gonna give it a shot on my next order… By the way, this is the ONLY way I watch my superbowl!!

Bonnie

My favorite Pu erh is still DT’s Oh Christmas Treat (is now renamed Chocolate Orange and has been re-released as a permanant tea due to high demand!)…even my daughter who does not like Pu erh’s loves this. I do think this needs to be at least 4 minutes steeped and sweet with milk as a latte for the best appreciation. I find any other method is a bit like drinking tobacco.

TheTeaFairy

thanks for the suggestion:-)

I only purchased 10g of this today, as I am noticing I have a lot of teas in my cupboard from DAVIDs that seem to get forgotten or lost simply because they are not my “cup of tea” (pardon the pun)

This one smells like a coffee lovers dream come true, if they were ever to branch out from coffee. I have the cream in the fridge in case this one needs a little help. I also should mention that I only put in a tsp of this tea into a T-sac, as I find most of DAVIDs teas are slightly over powering in flavours. I have just enough left that if I need that other 1/4 tsp for the next cup it will be there.

The tea makes me think of Sunday afternoons reading a book on my Kobo while rain pelts the window behind my reading chair.

More on the taste after it finishes steeping.

I don’t quite taste the chocolate or caramel notes, but this is a tea I will certainly place on my purchase list, I will need more of this one. I might add a little cream just to see how it plays with the chocolate and caramel notes in the tea.

A long time ago when I first started drinking loose leaf I thought I was so emancipated (or adventurous) that I could and would drink anything that came my way. So of course I bought 100 grams of Coffee Pu’erh. Why not? I made one cup, struggled, maybe even dumped it and promptly mailed the rest to Dexter3657. All of it except one teaspoon or so, in case this became my love and could never be found again.

Given that it is one of the first teas I purchased, dated sometime last spring, it’s time that I bid it farewell. Either dump it or drink it but I can’t drag it around in the tin anymore. I need the tin :)

And so here I sit with this here tea. I don’t like it. I made it with sugar and creamer so it resembles coffee. And it does, but the pu’erh is stronger. Oh boy. Not as unpleasant as some other pu’erhs I’ve tried, at least this one tastes of something… At long last I can remove it from my cupboard, never to be seen again!

I brought this sample from Shmiracles over to my parents house and shared small cups with everyone. I was really excited to try a coffee pu-erh as I’ve had my eye on a few from other companies for a while. I didn’t know this had other flavors in it too, so we were all surprised by the caramel flavor. I was hoping I’d detect some coffee notes, but I did not. For the most part, I don’t like sweet/dessert flavored shu pu-erh. The unique earthy mushroom qualities really don’t seem a good match for most sweet flavors. There has been only one sweet flavored pu-erh that I liked (just a little). it tasted like the original dentine gum and hardly like pu-erh at all. I think that’s the only way a sweet pu-erh can work for me: the flavor has to completely mask the pu-erh. Otherwise, sugary mushroom flavor just makes me feel nauseous.

basically if you ask me, the david’s pu-erhs that i sent you are the ones that nobody should be drinking. (except chocolate orange. that one is pretty tasty.)
but if someone told me that, i’d still wanna taste them. curiosity always gets me hah.
