Another little packet I received from TreeGal! Thanks so much! I felt like following my Lupicia’s coffee tea with another coffee tea today. This one is interesting (as in, potentially I might hate it) because the ingredients lists coffee grounds. I really like it better when a coffee flavor is artificial, I guess? Like Lupicia’s yesterday? No actual coffee. Otherwise, if a coffee element is genuine, it becomes too funky for me, as all coffee seems to be. Anyway, this is certainly better tasting to me than many other Steepsterers have experienced. There is definitely a coffee element throughout both steeps. But the coffee just seems a bit sour, again maybe it’s my coffee pickiness. There is also a sweet element as well, might be the cocoa beans. I don’t understand the chamomile in this blend at ALL. But it also doesn’t appear to result in the flavor. The color of the brew is neither too dark or too light, as this should be a puerh and black tea together. I wish more of the puerh made an appearance. Overall, a decent blend. However, I imagine the “coffee lovers” from the name might prefer coffee. But this isn’t terrible for a tea fan who wants a coffee flavored tea once in a while.
