I messed up the steeping on this one, but I’m pretty glad I did because it came out lovely. Instructions say to steep a tsp in 12 oz at 180º but I did my usual rounded tsp in 8oz at around 200º. Despite being named ‘strong’ black it is really very light. I imagine steeping as instructed would result in something far too weak for my tastes. There’s no astringency to note so I think I’ll steep an extra 30 seconds next time and see how that goes.
Though it’s not very strong it is very yummy. It’s light and sweet and citrusy. A little malty with a bit of stone fruit hiding in there and overall incredibly smooth. As the cup cooled a bit of cinnamon like spice became noticeable as well. Very nice.
