After opening the zip bag my first impression is that this blend just looks very esthetic – dark pu’erh, black tea plus lightly roasted coffee beans create a great visual effect. And it smells nice when dry, a balanced mixture of all the ingredients.
When steeped, it is very dark (obviously), with a mellow, balanced aroma, not dominated by coffee.
It is slightly sweet, slightly roasted, with malty and earthy notes from tea. Here the coffee also doesn’t dominate, blends very well in the overall impression.
Nice experience, on the middle ground between tea and coffee, with the best of both worlds.
