Meh, it’s basically a black tea. Not bad, but certainly not an oolong I would go to often. I picked this up many months ago, before I had much of any idea where my tea-preferences lie. The leaves have a malty, cocoa aroma.

Early steeps are malty with just a touch of cinnamon. By the third steep, a nice dark chocolate note asserts itself, along with a pleasant thickness. The cinnamon is gone by then. As soon as it arrives, the chocolate notes start to fade – steep number five is still quite nice though. It reminds me of a cookie or sweet biscuit. Steep six was pretty decent as well, with sweet maltiness and a distant chocolate echo. All steeps after were wimpy, malty, and thin.

I would recommend this to fans of black tea. I found it pleasurable enough, but distressingly short-lived.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Dark Chocolate, Malt, Sweet, Thick

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 6 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
