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*.

Went to the store today for my $1 iced tea hoping to have the Long Life Oolong but they were out of that so I grudginly took this one. I wasn’t sure I was really interested in it but figure hubby could drink it since he really loves his coffee. Apparently I was wrong. He only likes iced tea the way I make it and with lemonade in it. Ugh. I hoped he was up to new things. Guess not.
Anyway, I wasn’t really fond of this to begin with. It was somewhat bitter to start and I found the coffee flavour was overwhelming. I didn’t get the chocolate like the girl in the store promised. I really didn’t think I would get any of this one and would not try it again. But after over an hour in my cup I really started to like this one. I will have to try it hot with some milk since I really think that the reason I wasn’t enjoying it was that it was cold. Guess I need to get a small bag and try it hot.

I really like this one, and I’m not a huge pu-erh fan. But I don’t think I’d want it cold…that just seems wrong to me LOL

Cattibrie

It seemed a strange choice for an iced tea of the day but oh well. I think the Long Life Oolong would have been much better. Going to make some of that now for our super hot day here in Ontario.

DaisyChubb

I don’t mind this tea actually, it reminds me of an iced coffee that doesn’t need cream or sugar. That said, it’s not too “coffee” like, but I can see why it was iced! Sad, however, that Long Life was out. But hey, at least you got to give this one a try!

Do NOT steep for more than 2 minutes. Like the other reviewers said, this one is best steeped for a shorter time. Otherwise, that pu’erh flavor is “too much”. But w/a brief steeping, this approximates a coffee flavor and the pu’erh adds an extra dimension of flavor.

This seems like a perfect blend of coffee and pu’erh, and the chocolate/almond/caramel adds the nice and much-needed touch of sweetness. I didn’t do a rinse since I thought it might chase away the flavouring, and the first steep had the faintest bit of fishiness. The second steep was a little bland. Maybe I’ll try shorter steeps next time.

Thin-tasting. Definite sweetness. Rounded, somewhat artificial flavour. Coffee taste really comes out near the end of the sip. Has a watered-down coffee taste to it. I think that I may simply just not be a fan of coffee beans in my tea- I like the bold and creamy taste of actual coffee. Feels heavy and acidic down my throat.

It’s been so long since I’ve done a proper tasting note, I’m not actually sure how to describe this tea.

I would say this one is earthy but not in a straight up dirty kind of way. Maybe like wet leaves – oh wait, that’s what it is. :)

I can sort of taste the ‘coffee’ thing but wouldn’t say this was a substitute for coffee. It’s very good though.

First off, I’m not a coffee drinker. I’ve made that clear with other coffee alternatives.

I’m kind of getting tired of these coffee tea blends. They are essentially coffee, as they have coffee “extracts” in them. I’ve had two coffee alternatives from Teavana, which were mate teas rather than teas blended with “coffee extracts”.

It would be better if this was mate tea than coffee extract. I can taste the pu’erh and almond flavoring, but everything else just tells me coffee, and it’s not even good coffee.

this sounds so icky…

Peter Azak

It’s disappointing, because the coffee is there front and centre, so I don’t get why the pu’erh or any other flavoring is there. Teavana knows how to make proper coffee alternatives, because they are craftily well blended mate teas that taste like coffee, but have absolutely no coffee in them.

Day 61 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge. Catching up on the backlog!

Cuppa bought in store.

I have to say, I wasn’t expeting to enjoy this as much as I did. I’m not a coffee fan, and expect to dislike things that include it. However it tasted rather like a coffee crisp, which is something that I actually quite enjoy! I suppose it’s the mix of chocolate and other flavouring along with the actual coffee. Chocolate just makes everything better!

The one major downside of this tea was… it had an odd chalky texture to it…. Outside of that, I quite enjoyed it!

Kittenna

Coffee Crisp?? I am intrigued. Might have to add this to my list…

C-chan

It’s the mix of chocolate and coffee, I think. But yes. It made me think of coffee crisps as I drank for sure!

This tea is delicious! I could happily wake each morning to a cup of this. It’s coffee without being overwhelmingly so. I don’t really have a flavor in mind to compare it to, I just know I’m really enjoying it and if definitely worth trying if you’re an excoffee drinker OR if you just plain enjoy different teas.

Based on other reviews, it was better than I expected. You have to like pu’erh to like this tea, and I do! I expected the coffee flavor to be quite strong and to mask the rest of the flavor notes, but the caramel and almond were actually what I picked up the most.

There’s a roasted sweetness about the combo that works really well with the pu’erh IF it’s your thing in the first place. Because I found the flavors to be a bit artificial tasting, I’d probably just rather have pu’erh on its own. I got this tea as a sample with my last order and am not planning on buying it again.

Aimee Popovacki

I like this one if I need a kick in the butt in the morning. the coffee flavour tricks me into thinking i’m getting super caffeinated.

onelazysummer

Cool, and I agree! Great morning tea. Have you tried jumpy monkey? I like mates, and I like coffee, so I was thinking of giving it a shot :)

Aimee Popovacki

blehhhhh I did try jumpy monkey… I used to mix it with coffee to wean myself off of drinking like five black coffee’s a day… the taste isn’t the best.. its quite nutty and unflavourful.

I received this one as a sample, but since I don’t like coffee my boyfriend is going to taste and rate it :)

At first it tastes like tea, then has a coffee after taste. It tastes good but doesn’t fill my coffee fix.

Sorry for the brief description but that was the most I could get out of him haha :) he tried. This won’t be a repurchase for me just because I don’t like coffee and I can’t see my Boyfriend drinking it often.
