Tea Review: The Persimmon Tree’s Coconut Chocolate

April 14, 2014 in Puerh Tea / Tea Review
Coconut Chocolate –  The Persimmon Tree
Ingredients: Organic Pu-erh Loose-Leaf Tea, Organic Cocoa Nibs, Organic Coconut Pieces, Natural Flavors

Steep Time: 5 minutes

First Sip Thought: “Rich & Creamy!”

Smell: When first opening the tin, I wasn’t crazy about the scent. After I steeped it though, it was a delicious scent. The initial one definitely did not do it justice! A great way to realize to “never judge a tea by its initial smell.”

Taste: Don’t let the verdict steer you away, because I definitely enjoyed this pu-erh tea. It’s not like others because it’s not an intense earthy flavour. If I were to change one thing it would probably be to have more pu-erh taste than the coconut/chocolate, but that’s me being picky. However, the chocolate and coconut are the perfect match for the pu-erh base.  It’s a lovely taste and if you do enjoy coconut and chocolate then you’ll love the combination in this tea. I think of this tea as an excellent cozy drink. When I took a few sips I noticed a toasty coconut, and rich and creamy chocolate coating.  It is definitely not a cheap, artificial chocolate or coconut flavouring as well.
Bonus: several re-steeps of this tea will get you the same flavour each time!

Verdict: 3 out of 5 tea leaves
