From DAVIDsTEA

Craving a sweet treat without the guilt? This fudgy blend isn’t just rich and satisfying – it’s actually overflowing with feel-good ingredients thought to boost metabolism. First, we started with an energizing base of pu’erh, a smooth and earthy tea that’s been used for thousands of years to aid digestion. Then we added a delicious and wholesome dose of chicory root and rich cocoa. Finally, we topped it all off with decadent organic dark chocolate – a mood-enhancing treat that never fails to make us happy. Guilt-free and good for you? We won’t blame you if you go back for seconds.

This tea tastes better cold. Add rock sugar, steep, add milk, and then let cool to room temperature or lower. The chocolate flavour wins out over the bitterness in the end.

Really thought this one delivered on a rich chocolate flavor. Kind of sad I’m out.

I bought this on a whim as part of a sale, and overall I am really disappointed. I found the flavour rather bitter and could not enjoy it at all. I’ve also tried this as a latte to see if it would taste a bit better and it didn’t.

A smooth, rich chocolate tea with intense cocoa flavours. It brews a deep, rich brown colour, and the liquor smells like milk chocolate. The pu’erh flavour does come through when you drink this tea, adding a pleasant earthiness to the tea. Overall, it’s a lovely, well-balanced cocoa tea that forgoes the cloyingly sweet tendencies that other chocolate teas tend to acquire.

Really, REALLY didn’t like this tea. All I could taste was artificial sweetener with a hint of wood. Usually I’d try it with milk or something before dumping but I couldn’t do it! I don’t understand the point of adding sweeteners, especially stevia or splenda that have such strong tastes. I think the chicory/chocolate would have been interesting but the stevia just ruined it for me.

After trying this multiple times I can officially say that I don’t like this one. There is a strong after taste that is just bitter and just really artificial tasting and it just gets worse as it cools down. I won’t be purchasing this one again.

Has a faint taste of chocolate, almost like a watered down hot chocolate. It’s not too bad honestly, not something I LOVED but I still enjoyed it.

Tastes similar to Mocha Latte (also from DavidsTea). I can definitely taste the cocoa in it. It’s not a bad tea, I just prefer the Mocha Latte tea over this one.

Taste like a bitter version of Hot Chocolate puerh tea… (wich I dislike at first) Do you have so much leftover ingredients that you have to make this tea to get rid of some of those?

Unoriginal, and not very good IMO.

I officially hate this tea. I don’t think I’ve hated a tea this much before… Surprising, right? At first I didn’t mind the smell, and I tried it in store, but it had an interesting taste… I was unsure. SO I bought 15g to try at home, had a hot cup, thought it was tolerable, but meh. Then I took someones suggestion to try it as an iced latte with honey in it – and NOPE. I found myself JUST able to finish it, and after that I felt like gagging when I smelled it. It was horrible… Maybe I’m just not the biggest fan of pu’erh tea.

Don’t let this tea shape your entire perception of Pu’erh – there’s FAR better stuff out there (even within DAVIDsTEA alone). This just isn’t a great blend.

Personally, as far at flavoured stuff goes, I’d test the waters with either Chocolate Orange or Juicy Orange. In my opinion those are two of the better Pu’erh blends we sell at DAVIDsTEA at the moment. English Toffee is also quite popular, though admittedly I find it a bit rich.

Michelle

Oh, I know. I’ve tried my share of pu’erhs. I’m certain I’ve tried Juicy Orange and I just can’t stand the after taste – which is unfortunate because it had a nice orange flavour. I think I may have tried Chocolate Orange but I wasn’t the biggest fan of that one either. The only pu’erhs I have liked is Hot Chocolate and Garcinia Goodness, and didn’t mind Cinnamon Heart.

Roswell Strange

Fair enough! I actually didn’t mind Garcinia Goodness and was sad when it was retired; but I guess it was just too similar to Juicy Orange. Not a huge fan of Hot Chocolate, personally. Can’t say I ever tried Cinnamon Heart; it was from before I started working at DAVIDsTEA and obsessively trying to drink everything on the wall.
