72 Tasting Notes
This was the first loose tea that I ever really got into. This one is very chocolatey, and a little nutty, I think. There’s a teensy bit of astringency, and it doesn’t do well if steeped for too long. It’s wonderful hot or iced. I’m a bit of troublemaker and like my black teas with milk sometimes, and this one is certainly perfect for it. It’s like hot chocolate when hot with milk
So far, I’ve been reviewing only teas I love, and this is no exception. I thought it had just a little bit of astringency, which I like in a breakfast tea, but it still was very smooth and malty. I tried this one as a sample and then promptly ordered more. Like other teas that I enjoy, it has a light cocoa flavor.
