hmm this pu is a bit fishy. While I appreciate the intensely creamy, Earthy, malty flavour, the fishing smell/taste is off-putting. Some mineral notes, also. It is more similar to a black tea in profile, but with the added flavours of fermentation.
Overall, it was nice to have a chance to try it (Thanks to whoever put this in the travelling tea box ), however I wouldn’t buy it in a cafe or purchase a box. I prefer their flavoured puerhs over this one. If I want straight pu, I’ll opt for a very palatable YS shou.
Flavors: Earth, Fishy, Malt, Mineral, Tannin, Thick
A really good Puerh with a sweet chocolate aroma as advertised. Some notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. The second steep arguably lost a lot of its flavors, but the chocolate notes came through more strongly than in the first. Overall a great Puerh from Numi.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Nutmeg
Spicy, peppery. Simple and thin. Lacking in complexity, depth, roundness, and body. The hard, sharp spices overpowered the rooibos, so it tasted empty and harsh. The clove was particularly strong, and there were no secondary flavours.
Ingredients: Allspice, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger, Nutmeg, Rooibos
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger
Another sipdown. This is from the travelling teabox and I enjoyed trying the types of puerh from Numi. I’ve been eyeing these but didn’t want to commit to an entire box. I enjoyed trying this and would consider buying a box in the future.
Lots of earthy cocoa and cinnamon, citrus, vanilla. This isn’t sweet at all, so don’t think this will be desserty. I like it, though. It reminds me of 70% cocoa dark chocolate (bittersweet chocolate). This is very chocolaty and dark, but the spices are a nice addition too.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Citrus, Cocoa, Dark Bittersweet, Dark Chocolate, Spices, Vanilla
A family member brought me home some tea bags and sachets that her coworkers had brought to work. One tea bag of this tea was included. My expectations were not high at all considering that this is a rooibos tea. My last rooibos tea was a loose leaf vanilla rooibos from Trader Joes and tasted horrible.
I prepared this unsweetened with about 2 TSPs of milk
Taste wise: This tea is excellent! I can taste notes of the vanilla bean, it’s a very light feeling tea but rich at the same time. The cacao notes come into play making each sip rich yet light at the same time. I was extremely impressed. It has a velvety feel to it throughout each sip.
After trying it I looked at the ingredients and saw that it has honeybush and rooibos in it. I’d never had a honey bush tea only rooibos ones.
My rating system is pretty messed up in terms of how other people rate teas I would say that using their scale it would closer to a 85.
Don’t expect a heavy chocolate flavor because again it is a very light tea that has some richness. This isn’t a tea that would make a good latte.
The flavor overall is too light and it would be easy to add to much milk to.
Very easy to accidentally cover up the flavor. You definitely wouldn’t be able to taste it when you have a cold.
Flavors: Cacao, Cocoa, Smooth, Vanilla
Thanks to the Travelling Tea Box, I’m trying some of Numi’s flavoured puerhs that have been on my wishlist for a long time (years!)
The pu’erh is from Yunnan, but tastes like poorly stored ripe tea. I get lots of the typical mushroom and Earthy tones, but I also get some fishy smell from the brewed tea. Hints of wood and mineals. The cardamom is delightful and there is also some metallic liquorice taste from the green cardamom. This is actually a really tasty tea, but I wish they had used a less fishy puerh.
Flavors: Cardamon, Earth, Fishy, Licorice, Metallic, Mineral, Spices
