drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA
249 tasting notes

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.

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.
