M is for… Mocha!

Sipdown (1401)!

Thank you VariaTEA for sharing this – and all the other Kenneth Ave teas – with me! I think we were actually pretty aligned with this one in that it’s a bit too coffee like. I typically REALLY enjoy the earthy robustness of shou pu’erh but I think it really leaned into those dark roast coffee notes in a way that made me feel less like I was having a tea and more like I was having coffee. I actually appreciate the accuracy of the flavour a lot, but it’s not for me. Coffee flavours like this are always just so weird for me because I like REALLY dark roasted/earthy flavours a lot – Hojicha, Guinness, Shou Pu’erh, Buckwheat…

But not coffee.

It’s not a “tea is the greatest, coffee sucks” thing either. I’ve just never really liked the taste of coffee, even long before I got into tea.

Kenneth Ave Advent Calendar – Day 5

One sip and the rest went down the drain. I pulled it out and knew this wasn’t going to be a good one for me because puerh. However, I brewed it up anyways because Roswell Strange has sent me a couple puerhs last year that were tolerable. Except as soon as I pulled the filter out, the strong puerh sent hit me and I just knew I would not like this. One sip and the puerh wasn’t terrible if I am being honest but it was still a strong puerh taste. The other flavor was coffee, real coffee, and I don’t drink that either for a reason. So I wasn’t a fan. But I am not its target audience by a long shot.

Oh dear. I’ve only had a handful of pu’erhs, but they always smell fishy to me. I can’t get past it to want to try others…

I’ve had a puerh or two that I quite enjoyed, but it’s just not something I care to explore at this point. And if I did, it would be more likely to be sheng puerh anyway. :)

VariaTEA

@Courtney, that’s my issue as well. I really only try them now when someone sends them to me. Otherwise I avoid them

@Cameron B, I think I am so checked out when it comes to puerh that I really never know if I am having sheng or shou haha
