Drank two cups of this today. It was disappointing and even less enjoyable than the last time I drank it. Trying to drink up the last few teas I have that are about or over a year old. This one is about a year old and smells like a decadent chocolate truffle.

Prep: 1st Cup: Boiling water for 2:15 minutes
2nd Cup Just below boiling water steeped slightly longer than before.

Ended up tasting like a weak plain black tea. I changed the steeping parameters though to try to bring out the chocolate notes.

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
