Although not complex, I like this tea. It’s very straightforward and tastes as advertised – honey, malt, cocoa. My primary reason for posting is the recommended brew temperature. When I brewed at the recommended 205°, I found it to be bitter. However 195° brewed a fragrant flavorful liquor with very slight bitterness, which I don’t mind. I will brew again with less leaf, and if less bitter, I’ll edit this post.
EDIT: I have brewed this again with slightly less leaf & found no bitterness. I also was able to experience a faint flavor and aroma of fine tobacco & Italian leather. I really enjoyed this added complexity.
