So yeah, I saw the Chocolate Pu'Erh listed here with a much more affordable (cost-to-quantity) offering, so I jumped on it. But what I got, was not anything like the boxed version. Foremost, there's no cocoa or pu'erh in the bag, at all. You can't see it, you can't taste it raw, and you can't taste it in a brew. Not that the boxed version's "pu'erh" really tastes like a proper pu'erh to begin with, but that was actually *why* it was so good- it was like a mellowed, unfermeted pu'erh that still somehow tasted like pu'erh. Much like with mellow matcha leaf teas, it's a fun, tasty contrast to [matcha powder teas, strongly fermented pu'erh]. This, though.. wow.
Okay, so the first thing you notice when you open the bag is nutmeg. Nutmeg, every flippin where, and then some more thrown in for emphasis. And when you brew it? That- unsurprisingly, considering- is the dominant flavor, by far. Cardamom is the next dominant flavor, followed by an abstract grassy flavor.
The next thing you notice in the bag are the branches. Oh, you assume they're rolled up pu'erh leaves at first, then you realize they're all, each and every one, just branches, and not the kind of branches you'd associate with a tea plant. I have to assume the aforementioned grassy flavor comes from the various branches that fill the bag in place of tea leaves, given that it fills out the body of the brew the way you'd expect tea to.
Of course, given that there is not a single tea leaf in the entire bag, it's hard to say whether this still classifies as a tea. Or at least, it'd likely classify as an herbal tea, given that all it has is branches, and they don't appear to be ones from a tea plant. Inherently, pu'erh would be typically be simply described as fermented, compressed tea leaves- meaning that when they get added to water, and uncompress, you can expect to see actual leaves. So even if we're talking an atypical pu'erh, this... just wouldn't appear to at all match to even the most lenient of expectations for the label (that is, even if the branches actually *are* from a tea plant which, again, I'm having to doubt- as I'll justify further a bit later on).
So yeah, a bag full of branches and nutmeg, accented by cardamom and a slight touch of cinammon and citrus (I can't tell if the vanilla is really subtle or, like the cocoa and pu'erh, just isn't included at all. Trying one of my boxed offerings, I'm definitely leaning towards the latter, as I can certainly taste it in the boxed version*. Given how overpowering the nutmeg and cardamom are, it may however be a combination of subtleness and being overpowered by the spices.)
*(Moreover, the bags in the boxed version have noticably- or, rather, radically- different visuals on the ingredients, as well, even after accounting for the finer chopping bagged teas have. There's leaf bits, a lack of excessive nutmeg, a scent of vanilla, and lots of visible cocoa powder. Thus really emphasizing the impression that whatever I received is not, in fact, the same "tea" as the boxed version.)
Sounds bad enough for a one star review, right? Oh, but I haven't gotten to the best part. You know what you taste more than spices and vague grassyness? Bitterness. Bitterness of a level that I have never in my life encountered before. I love bitter things- alcohol, tea, coffee. Those are my go-to drinks (sodas or other non-water beverages are rare), and I drink them for flavor, not for chemical benefits. Bitter is something I'm good with. Dark chocolate? I love it. The darker the better. 95% is weaksauce, gimmie 98% or darker. Bitter sauces on foods, salads, even ice creams? Cool, that could be interesting, if done right.
This, however, isn't just bitter. It's.. it's the difference between eating the sweet-and-spicy flavor of a jalepeno and calling it spicy, and taking "the world's hottest defensive pepper spray" and emptying the bottle into your mouth and calling it spicy. Simply put, this goes beyond flavor categorizations and into the realm of outright physical violence.
Sampling some of the branches from the mix, I found they exhibit this same bitterness, while not offering even a touch of tea flavor. Thus, I can only conclude that whatever the heck these branches are, they're: 1, not derived from a tea plant and 2, not fit for human consumption.
Honestly, if the bag wasn't so clearly to the Numi style, I'd assume this was a knockoff. As is, I can only assume Numi is selling worthless trash online to scam unknowing people, while for some reason not caring about alienating their existing consumerbase.
No, seriously, I cannot at all emphasize how awful this is. I mean, I'm not keen on overly strong cardamom, and this has notably more of a nutmeg flavor than those cookies I made as a kid that one time I accidentally emptied a fifth a bottle of nutmeg powder into the recipe, and I'm pretty sure they lied completely about the cocoa and vanilla and tea being in there. But hey, at least you could still salvage that- blend it 1:5 with a normal tea, and it'd probably be reasonably balanced. Not even remotely what you'd expect from the blend, and still strong on nutmeg, but who doesn't like the occasional nip of cookie-flavored tea? At least it wouldn't be a waste of ingredients (whatever the heck they might actually be).
But whatever is going on with those branches and the bitterness just destroys any chance of considering this usable. It's rather similar to that one heat-spoiled bottle of Port wine I got: I tried mixing it with a non-damaged Port [to try and salvage the money spent on the first one], but no matter how little I put in of the first, it ruined the latter addition. You could just taste the "spoiled-ness" undercutting the drink, even with just a splash added in. Similarly, all you'd be getting if you mix this with something else is "extra bitterness, extra nutmeg, and a bit of extra cardamom". Simply put, it'd just be better to buy nutmeg and cardamom directly and mix those flavors in on their own, if they're desired, than to also add in even a hint of the extreme bitterness of this blend.
Add in that this doesn't even have tea flavor to begin with, and it's just spices and "spoiled-ness". Honestly, if someone had an herbal/spice-based compost pile, I gotta imagine this is what it'd eventually taste like. Though somehow, despite being labeled as pu'erh, this has no hint of fermentation, so perhaps the compost pile would taste more like what this tea is supposed to than it currently does. Eesh.
And again, just for emphasis: This is bad.
Even with my comments above, it still needs this additional emphasis.
Because it's bad; So very bad.
But again, buy the boxed version if you can, if you don't think it's too much of a splurge. I've bought 10 or more of the boxes so far, and never once had a flavor issue. Whatever the heck *this* is, though, you're best avoiding it like you would a large-scale public gathering where noone is wearing face masks. In fact, given how upset my stomach has gotten after sampling this tea (seriously, what is even in this?) I can only assume you've got a similar (or higher) likelihood of making yourself sick with this. >.>
