I don’t know that I’ve ever had snails of my very own :) Snagged a sample pack of this one yesterday, and it is exactly as advertised—has that lovely dry cocoa scent, which translates precisely into a dry cocoa taste when it’s steeped. I have half a swallow, cold, still in my cup, and it still smells rich and wonderful.

I think this is one I’d buy by the bushel, but since this is one of Savoy’s pricier samples, I’ll have to stretch the lifespan of what I have. I did get plausible second steep out of the leaves.
