This brew gives you a tasty boost with a unique combination of exotic ingredients. It combines four types of coffee beans with Argentinian maté, and laces them with carob, white chocolate and chicory. The result is sweet, rich and deliciously satisfying. Plus it’s a sweet treat you can enjoy guilt-free, since this blend has virtually no calories. No wonder they say maté makes you efficient.

My friends have been crazy over DT for over a year now but I was yet to hop onto the wagon. So the other day I had finally decided to try it. Myself being a coffee drinker I am definitely used to bolder flavors but that is not to say that I think tea in general is bland. Lately I’ve been drinking Tazo’s organic chai and find that it is very spicy and that it brews fairly strongly, which is what I like. That’s why I was so surprised by how weak David’s Tea is. Jumpy Monkey in particular.. It tastes like murky coffee filter water that comes out when the machine goes through a cleaning cycle! And the color of the tea just looked like chicken bouillon to me. However aromatic Jumpy Monkey smells in the container, that certainly is not how this tea tasted. I feel the same about the DT chais I had purchased. David’s Teas smell good and so enticing, and that’s why I think they’ve done so well. Sad to say I won’t be going back there.
This tea has always been around but I never really thought much of it because the thought of coffee in my tea just didn’t appeal to me. I LOVE coffee and I LOVE tea but I wasn’t sure if they were to go together. As a gift I received the Tiramisu combo tea pack and Coffee Purreh is one of the teas included. After using the combo pack I had a little bit of coffee purreh left so I tried it and fell in love. I have stuck to it for months and months EVERY day. So yesterday when I was at David’s tea the lady told me if you love coffee and chocolate you’ll like this blend. Just made myself a cup and instantly had to jump on steepster to give it a fabulous review! I think I’ve found my new favourite.. Thanks David!!
Flavors: Coffee, White Chocolate
I’m still not sure regarding this tea. I got a sampler from DavidsTea mostly for the caffeine intake as i’m not the greatest of coffee peoples. But it just doesn’t really taste like tea. I made sure the second time to brew only to the required temp, but i accidentally oversteeped it and put a little too much sugar (yes i’m one of those people, but it’s amazing what flavours half a tsp of sugar can bring out in teas). It’s ok. Just ok. I like the undertones of the coffee, but it’s nothing particularly special. Perhaps a third brew with the right amount of sugar will give me a better understanding.
Ok, at first I really HATED that tea. Reading the ingredients, it seemed to be a good energizing blend that would taste like coffee, almond and white chocolate, miamm, sounded good! But when you let it steep according to what it says on the label, it’s just like cloves and wood steeped in water, so agressive and bitter.
Today I felt kind of down and I wanted a good tea I wasnt used to drink, so I gave Jumpy Monky a 16th chance by steeping it only a minute and a half and it was actually good! Not even only more drinkable, but I would definetely drink it again anytime. The cloves didnt have time to take all the place so I had only light notes of almonds and coffee without that wierd wood taste.
it’s a good one to drink when you feel like having a wake-up drink instead of coffee that tastes different than any classic.
Flavors: Espresso, Wood
Looking at the ingredients, I guess the goal was to make this tea taste like chocolate and coffee. It kind of worked! It tastes more like mate tea mixed with coffee and the chocolate flavor, is more like carob, but there is a slight sweetness that brings those flavors together. I must admit, that it has a great tea body that is smooth and very satisfying.
I adore Mate and I adore coffee-esque teas. I like this, it’s good, it’s not my favorite example of this type of tea, but there really isn’t much wrong with it.
It’s a bit “thin” for my taste, not robust enough, just a bit flat. Maybe not enough mate in the mix and too much other stuff. I will certainly enjoy the bag that I have, but I don’t feel that it will make my “must have” list.
I got a cup of this the other day at my local David’s Tea, and had really high hopes. I wanted to like it, really badly. I just really, really didn’t. The best part about this tea (to me) was the caffeine boost. The taste was really fat— it filled my mouth, just without real flavour. It was bitter, and borderline unpleasant. This is one I will certainly not re-buy!
