Morning Cup is a new daily segment where I post what I am drinking with a quick image of my beverage and some initial thoughts. This is Morning Cup #8
Pu’erh teas certainly have their fans. Some are so die hard they refuse to drink any other type of tea. I’m not sure I could ever agree to give up the luxury of diverse flavor potential. But this coffee flavored pu’erh from David’s Tea certainly has some things going for it.
Those of us fond of chai sometimes enjoy the experimentation which can come with this beverage. It’s spiciness lends the flavor profile to being played with. This CoCo Chai Rooibos from David’s Tea offers a nice twist.
There are a lot of ways we create “tea.” The puritans amongst us will scoff at anything not at least partly of Camelia Sinensis. I’m guilty of this myself sometimes. But there’s no denying this nut and beetroot blend from David’s Tea in Canada smells and tastes great!
It’s not every day I find a treat I like. I mean, I drink an exorbitant amount of tea, and I enjoy almost all of it. I’m discerning when I need to be, but sometimes I need to kick back. This Turkish Delight from David’s Tea is like a dessert for me!
Regardless of most of your tastes with tea, Pu’erh (poo-air) seems to be a love it or hate it thing. In the case of this artificially aged coin style Pu’erh, I’d say odds are high you’ll enjoy it. That is, if you enjoy a nice black coffee.
In the past I’ve not been a fan of Mate. Its flavor was notably sour or harsh and it just didn’t seem to be my thing. Always open to new experiences, I decided to try again. This Chocolate Mint Mate from David’s Tea has changed my outlook on Mate.
I’ve become an especially big fan of some interestingly blended teas as of late. David’s Tea based in Toronto, Ontario Canada offers a delicious Gunpowder green they call Gunpowder Taffy… and it’s delicious!
