Love tea AND love coffee? Who says you can't love them both, and even enjoy them together at the same time? Coffee Lover tea by Yawn is made for tea and coffee drinkers that love both coffee and tea.
What is Coffee Lover tea?
Coffee Lover is a quite unique blend, not only because it contains tea and coffee. This blend contains two types of tea – black tea and pu'erh tea, two types of coffee – green coffee beans and ground coffee – cocoa beans and chamomile petals. Leaves are long and twisted, blended with whole green coffee beans. These ingredients are sweet, strong, calming, bitter and earthy, almost all of which can be attributed to a good cup of coffee.
What's super interesting about this tea it contains green coffee, rather than roasted coffee. Green coffee beans are nothing more than regular coffee beans that haven't been roasted yet. Green coffee is not uncommon at all, as all coffee starts from “green” coffee, but it's rarely sold. Which makes it rare. Green coffee contains much more chlorogenic acid than roasted coffee, a polyphenol responsible for providing antioxidant properties in coffee (1).
Another interesting ingredient in a Coffee Lover tea blend are chamomile petals. Chamomile tea may provide soothing and calming benefits, and it's often a tea of choice for tea drinkers that want to avoid caffeine. With these interesting ingredients, the Coffee Lover tea blend smells delicious. This tea smells like sweet, dusted chocolate pralines with a creamy coffee filling. Or imagine a rich, dark hot chocolate blended with roasted coffee and malty, earthy black tea. It's one of those teas that will fill the air with scent and make you want to brew it immediately.
How to brew this tea?
Coffee Lover tea is a black and pu'erh tea blend, which means it's OK to brew it with nearly boiling water. Bring water to a boil and let it cool down for a minute. Then steep 1 or 2 teaspoons of tea leaves per cup of water for 3-4 minutes. 2 teaspoons will give a stronger flavour and more caffeine. When brewed, this tea has exactly the same scent as dry leaves. It brews into an incredibly light tea with coffee and chocolate notes blended into a well-balanced flavour and a strong and long aftertaste. Although this is a pu'erh tea and a black tea, none of them are dominating this blend.
Coffee Lover tea is perfect for afternoon tea breaks when you want to awake all your senses. It's not a typical black tea or a typical pu'erh tea. It's not a cup of coffee either. If you love dark chocolate cocoa dusted coffee pralines, this tea is a tea for you. It's incredibly light too, with no bitterness, only a perfectly balanced flavour. It doesn't need any condiments, but you can add a splash of milk and a sweetener too.
