Second Review. This is one delicious flavored Pu erh! The Strawberry is super rich and holds it’s own next to the Chocolate and Pu erh flavors. Dessert, Dessert, Dessert!
If you had a big chocolate 6 layered cake with a thin layer of mocha caramel cream and some strawberries piled between the layers and plopped whipped cream on the top (I added cream and sweetening just a bit) this is what you have in a cup of this Pu erh (well not exactly but close to it). And… being a pu erh, you get to keep pouring and have some more…(I now laugh my feverish mad laugh…wah ha ha).
You have surmised that I do in fact like this tea a bunch!

ashmanra

Ooo, I have the one from Lupicia. I wonder if they are the same? The one from Lupicia is pretty decadent.

Bonnie

You know when something is overly flavored, sweetened and sickening…well …this is NOT that way! It’s good!

Thomas Edward(Toad)

That sounds wonderful :)

Indigobloom

it IS wonderful. HEAVENLY!! :)

ashmanra

I don’t think the Lupicia one was too sweet, if I remember it correctly. It was so flavorful that the aroma filled the kitchen, though! I actually had one sample tea sachet of it and steeped it once, then resteeped it for someone else who wanted to try it because of the way it made my kitchen smell. I just got it loose leaf but haven’t gotten around to drinking any of it yet! maybe I can have some of it in the next day or two and post a fresh review!

ashmanra

I would love it if this tastes the same and costs less. Lupicia is soooo expensive!

Bonnie

This is $4.89 1oz. and $19.17 4.4oz. which is a big bag. I split a big bag with my daughter and now I asked my son to big a bag from Pier 39 in San Francisco. USE THE KIDS!

Indigobloom

but… that’s only 39c savings! might as well buy four one ouncers so that they’re portable :)

ashmanra

Bonnie, PM me your addy and I will send a couple teaspoons of the Lupicia end and you can tell me if they are the same!

Bonnie

Indigo baby…you also get .4 ounces MORE tea!

Indigobloom

yes that’s true as well! darn I wish my supply wasn’t at work… and don’t worry, I would leave some other tea in it’s place if I mugged ya ;P

okayyy I know I reviewed this one before. I remember specifically commenting that it was pu-erh awesomeness because with some milk it tastes like melted chocolate strawberry icecream… or rather, strawberry chocolate milk. SO good. Three steeps of this baby and I still wanted MORE.
I’m a little annoyed now. Steepster ate my post :(
The strawberry doesn’t come out much at first. It’s rather mild… but give it a chance, it will build I promise! With milk, this outbids any other flavoured pu-erh I’ve ever tried. Without… ehhh, it’s ok. A little too weak. No matter, I don’t mind at all =D
This will be one to repurchase, no hesitation about that!

Bonnie

I covet this! Sounds so great!

Indigobloom

oh it is Bonnie, it really is… and it really solved my chocolate craving to!

momo

oh this sounds good. now I feel bad that I didn’t stop in one of their stores in Florida because I want this!

SimplyJenW

This sounds so reminiscent of Lupicia’s Chocolate Strawberry Pu’erh. I will give my comparison of the two very soon.

Indigobloom

Amanda, I only have dregs left in my sample or else I’d send you some to try!
SimplyJen, ooh! I look forward to that!!

momo

It’s okay, I will be back there soon enough! I saw their prices online before I had left and thought it sounded crazy for like, an ounce of rooibos, but I did not even see this!

Bonnie

I found out that there is a branch at Pier 39 in San Francisco so I can ask my son to get this for me. Ha! You’ve got to milk the adult kids now and then…it’s good for them and he doesn’t have kids so…I’ll be his kid! (I just sent him tea samples so I’m not a bad mom)

Daniel Scott

Wow, the concept of a chocolate strawberry pu-erh is amazing.

Indigobloom

Amanda: I think this was new when I got there. When did you go?
Bonnie: LOL hey anything goes when it comes to keeping a good stock of tea! besides, it’s the best way to make a convert :P
Daniel Scott: it is so good. way better than the orange choco versions I’ve had!

Bonnie

I think you just TEAWITTERED Indigobloom (what kinda word is indigobloom…are you an oolong? )

Indigobloom

LOL I suppose I did! hehe
Indigo is my fave colour and bloom… well I was having a blooming tea when I chose it haha. Btw my real name is Adrienne!

Bonnie

That is a beautiful name…Adrienne with a cuppa tea in her hand…..

Indigobloom

Thank you Bonnie!! you are so kind.
I wish I had a cup now… but I’m about to hit the zzzs!

Hmmm. Thought I reviewed this before because I got a sample from Indigobloom and it was the reason I decided to purchase this….

Anyway, second tea of the morning…..

I think pu’erh is usually a cooler weather tea for me, but I decided to have this today anyway. I did pick this up on a recent trip to Williamsburg, VA where they have a Spice & Tea Exchange. It was a fun stop. I picked up an ounce of this, the Coconut Oolong, and a Hazelnut tea that I cannot seem to locate at the moment….This should tell me it is time to do some rearranging…. I do find their tea a little on the pricey side. I think $4.89 per ounce is very steep for some, but not necessarily for others like the Coconut Oolong. They did give $2 off for buying three ounces. I do appreciate the ability to buy in small mounts, though. Bulk amounts there are definitely cost prohibitive.

I really like this one. There is something wonderful about the combination of chocolate flavors and pu’erh tea. It is like they were meant to be together. The addition of the strawberry just makes it taste like a decadent dessert. I can’t really decide if I like this one or the one from Lupicia better. I guess it will just depend on where I am shopping at the time of needing more….

Mug method, 3 minute steep. Lightly sweetened.

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec
Indigobloom

wow I can’t believe I inspired a purchase! :P

ashmanra

We used to Williamsburg a lot! Where is the Spice and Tea Exchange there?

SimplyJenW

It was right down town! I think they have only been open for a little over a year. We were checking out the area looking for a place to eat dinner….I saw the store and my hubster went around the block to let me out….then he parked. It was quite comical.

This tea was quite good- sweet & chocolatey with a hint of strawberry and the earthy undertone of pu-erh. I enjoyed it, but I think I’d have liked if the pu-erh and strawberry flavors had stood out more. Maybe it’s just because I have a love hate relationship with chocolate sometimes, but to me the chocolate was a little bit of a show stealer. I tend to gravitate towards darker, more bitter chocolates though so maybe that was part of it!

For die-hard chocolate lovers however, I think this tea would be a huge hit! I definitely enjoyed it though and it was a nice rich cup to stir me awake this morning :)

This sounds like a great idea for a tea but not sure if I would like the chocolate taking over either. I am picky about chocolate teas – most taste too artificial.

Bonnie

My favorite chocolate tea is a dark chocolate from them (STE) more on the bittersweet side. Really good!

Tawny Kira

Yeah, I’m not a HUGE chocolate person, so the chocolate being the main thing I tasted was for me a negative. I think if the tea flavors and the strawberry flavors had been more prominent, and the chocolate in the background, it would have been more to my liking :)

@ Bonnie- the darker the chocolate the better, so a good bittersweet chocolate note to a tea would probably be pretty tasty! :)

Thanks to “Bonnie” for this sample… (And Many Others ;-))

This tea was good, pleasant and well blended, but too fruity for my taste! I like to taste the “Tea” for all of it’s intricacies!!

Sorry, this is a favorite of some steepsters for desert. Never know what people will like which is why I sent it to you with all the other samples. Keep it to give away!

Relmaster

No need to be sorry ;) I HIGHLY appreciate the samples you have sent me and will drink every last one of them to give them a “fair shake” !! ;) You told me to be true to myself when writing reviews and have fun…it’s hard but I’m trying ;) The tea is not bad in any sense of the word..it’s just good for my taste ;) (not a fan of overly fruity blends) Since it is a “Pu-erh” tea..how many steeps can I make with it ??(i’m on steep #4 right now and it’s holding up pretty well..much more mellowed strawberry/fruity taste..ahhh much better)

Bonnie

Keep it up!!! I agree with what you said! The flavored ones only 2 probably since they’re filled with chocolate and other stuff. Never know though. With the natural flavors like Verdant’s Alchemy blends you can do several steepings. I recommended that you to play with the tea…so go for it! Samples are for play!

This tea tried to fool me! I got it as a sample from the lovely and awesome Indigobloom and when I labelled it I wrote black instead of pu’erh. So when I went to brew it, half asleep this morning, I was started to smell pu’erh as I lifted it for my first sip. Tricky tea, I figured you out anyway!

Dry this tea smells lovely, like a chocolate filled with strawberry nougat waiting in the tray calling to you. Brewed, the tea definitely has notes of pu’erh, but I didn’t detect any fishiness. There were hints of strawberry in the smell but I didn’t really get much chocolate. Leery now since I’m not a fan of pu’erhs yet, I hesitantly took my first sips.

Okay, this is now the second pu’erh that I’ve enjoyed. The strawberry is a fake strawberry, like those candies I mentioned above. The chocolate and pu’erh balance really nicely, however, to make it a lovely cup.
