It starts off with a light roasted and sweet taste. It quickly grows into a heavy roast and then around steep 8 switches around into a sweet taste. Not a heavy one but an extremely pleasant flavor that contrasts and enhances the toasty flavor reminds me of apples somehow. Been steeping it for a couple hours now and it hasn’t given out at all. Highly recommend it.
