 (22 reviews)

type: black

origin: china pu erh

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

The earthy smoothness of Pu Erh creates a warm foundation for the rich flavor of hazelnut while playful, tangy-sweet strawberries peek through the nutty opulence. A hint of cream adds a soft, dreamy note to the blend. Steep at 212°F for 5 minutes

      This was my first pu erh and the most delicious tea I have ever drank. I immediately had to get more after sampling it, and then got a yixing teapot to make it in! I love this tea. It is rich, earthy, flavorful, and comforting. I will always keep this in my pantry.

      My favorite tea I've had. Smooth and sweet. It always hits the spot.

      I am having a cup right now and while it is steaming hot on this chilly morning, the fragrant aroma is delightful. The flavors come together nicely for this dark, flavorful cup of tea that is not too overpowering.

      Surprised me! Robust and strong, but with a great rich quality from the cream and nuts, and a hint of berry to brighten it up.

      Tastes great with cream and sugar too!

      The tea smells and tastes great. The hazelnut and berry combination are a perfect match for the earthy pu-erh. A nice tea for re-steeping, too.

      For how much I don't like Pu-erh Dante I'm surprised I've liked all the flavored pu-erh's I've tried since, this one included. I did rinse the tea, and I tossed the rinse since I did detect a fishiness, then I carried on with the regular steep. When hot the earthy pu-erh mixed with the hazelnut flavors. As it warmed the strawberry came forward to join the party, it was more of a light flavoring so I helped it along a bit with some sugar.

      On the 2nd and 3rd steep I lost the strawberry flavor all together but the hazelnut still hung on. I like these 2nd and 3rd steeps in general with pu-erh because the earthiness of the pu-erh is a bit weaker.

      Steeped (1) 200F 4m, (2-3) 200F 5m

      This was pleasant, but did not wow me. The players are all there and the nu and berry work well together.

      Delightful tea. Smooth, smooth, smooth. Not a trace of bitterness or astringency. Very rich with light berry notes and lots of hazelnut flavor.

      What a delicious tea! It's like eating strawberries while tending to a garden. The earthiness compliments the strawberry and hazelnut tastes.

      Brewed 212F for 5 minutes with brown sugar added

      This tea was rather delicious. I ended up brewing it twice. Round one was a a little too strong bodied for me so I ended up adding milk to. The result gave a nice strawberries and crème effect. Round two was less heavy on the pu-erh and allowed the fruit and crème notes to really come forward so I drank that with only the brown sugar. Even without the milk for round two, I was still given that delicious strawberries and crème flavor. This definitely a tea that I would love to purchase in the future!

      This is one of my favorite teas from Adagio. Hazelnuts and strawberries rooted in a Pu-erh base lends to a woodsy chocolate cup of goodness.

      This tea is wonderful, though I do have to use a little more tea/increase steeping time to get the flavor I want as Pu-Erh tends to be too light for my taste. The hazelnut is very prominent, more so than the berry, which I can taste hardly any of. If I wanted to increase the berry flavor, I might mix this into a blend with some of my berry black teas. It has that earthy/"dirty" Pu-Erh flavor that's so unique. I really love it!

      I feel as though this tea doesn't really stand out among my collection. It's a safe bet for some easygoing comfort, but it's not gonna knock your socks off.

    • 

      Something about it always reminded me of Crunch Berries. Both the scent of the dry mix and the flavor of the tea just keep making me think of it. Not that that's a bad thing. Plus it's a nice way to get the benefits of pu-erh without having to deal with the taste of pu-erh.

    • 

      This tea is rich and sweet. The strawberry come through without being too artificial-tasting. I don't taste a definite hazelnut flavor but more of a general warm nutty flavor that makes this naturally sweet.

      This is the tea I go to whenever I crave for milk tea. This tea goes really well with milk and sweetener

      Easily one of my favorites of all time. It makes a wonderfully sweet and complex iced tea.

      This tea is more of an acquired taste for me, but interesting to try out if you want to get into pu'er. It's very smooth with no bitterness, and has a bright berry cream flavor on top of the earthy musty pu'er taste. It almost tastes like warm strawberry milk if you add some cream to it.

      AMAZING! The fruity mixed with hazelnut is perfect. You can taste all the flavors evenly. It's delicious!

    • 

      Wow! This is an amazing tea. It's the first pu-erh that I've tried, and I seem to have picked a good one. I concur with many of the other reviewers on the earthiness, which I assume from reading their comments is a feature of pu-erh. The nutty flavor on top of that, along with the hint of strawberry, makes for a wonderful blend of flavors. Will try with cream sometime for sure.
