Perfectly smooth on entry, with a rich dark chocolate flavor hinting at sweetness and closing with a very slight note of mint. The body of this tea is wonderfully thick, and it lacks any form of astringency or bitterness.

7Apr- Still powering through my What-cha teas. I got a lot of samples. 192F 5gish, 150ml gaiwan
Dry leaf smells of malt, fruit, almost cherry. 7 steeps: 10s to 1min30s. Pretty much smooth dark chocolate throughout . It was a little one note for me. A chocolate one note…I just wanted a little something else. 78

2 more brews before I sip this down. I made some this morning and it was a pleasantly earthy wake up. Cocoa, malt, earth, and some tannin. I’ll wait before rating it again. It was in the 90’s when I first tried it, now, I’ve been spoiled with so many other teas. I need to write about the Nepal Imperial because I finished that within the week I received it.
