Commercial Description

Our Coffee & Cigarettes tea combines an older earthy puerh with a lighter jammy Lapsang Souchong and a coffee flavor with just a touch of cream to round it out. The smoke flavor is fairly light and in no way dominates the blend. Adding sugar will enhance the coffee flavor for a taste that resembles coffee ice cream. Please note we are in no way advocating smoking. Please rinse this puerh prior to steeping.

]Dry leaf: smells like freshly ground coffee beans, a light tough of hay, strong earthy notes, and a touch of smoke.

Liquor Color: deep dark brown.

Notes: I instantly fell in love with this tea. I am in trouble, because it is all that I will ever have. Even though I have only tried it once, I can have already been hunting for another coffee-flavored puerh to add lapsang souchong to. About the LS in this tea, I personally think it could stand to be a little more present in this tea. You know me, I really like my smoky flavors! The coffee flavoring is spot on as well. It is like a fresh brewed cup of dark roast coffee with the addition of a very light smoke.

I gongfu'd this tea, and was able to infuse it 16 times before giving it a rest. The earth and wet wood flavor carried the whole way through, as well as that coffee flavoring. I remember from pumpkin butterscotch coffee that the coffee did linger longest in the brew. The smoke fizzled out within maybe 10 steepings. This was a very good shou puerh base!

I shared the first eight steepings with my ever-patient boyfriend. I rinsed for five seconds. I left the room to grab a pitcher of water and heard my boyfriend exclaim, "Wow, this really does taste like coffee and cigs!"
"But I haven't made the first cup yet!" I shouted back, confused as hell. Turns out he had drank the rinse that I had left in the cha hai LOL. I tried to explain to him that the water from the rinse was not good, and meant for only your worst enemies, but he didn't seem to understand.
