chocolate pu erh

price level: $$$$
This tea is really good, it doesn't get bitter no matter how long you steep it! The chocolate is not super strong but it is there and the cinnamon and vanilla as well. I love this with some milk!
This one is overrated in my opinion. To me it neither has the flavor of the chocolate nor the flavor of pu-erh. I love pu-erh and the earthiness and I drink a lot of pu-erh tea both pure and flavored. This one failed to wow me. There is a slight chocolate flavor if you reach for it but something is missing in this one. Again if it was given to me I would drink it but it is not something that I would seek out and try to buy.
I'm a bit surprised that I'm the first to review this tea - it must be one of Numi's most popular blends. I'm not a fan of pu-erh in general, and though purists would probably reject this tea, I like it. The chocolate and earthiness go well together, but it does not taste "dirty" as some pu-erhs do. One can buy it in loose-leaf form as well as bagged.
