VERY strong, dark cocoa, malty-goodness! This is a solid tea! There is a touch of smooth – much like honey – playing around on the tongue – while I sip.
The 2nd infusion isn’t as brash. I do like both infusions, however. I like the sturdiness of the first one but I like the toned-down cocoa notes paired with a sweeter honey or ‘mead’ taste in the 2nd infusion as well!
This is a mighty-fine tea!
I did a double shot of this because I think it’s a bit weak if I don’t do it that way and it was a bit better. It’s still not my favorite 1st Flush nor is it even my favorite tea that Teatulia offers – but it’s better once you play with it a bit. It’s medium strength with a bit of brashness. Would make a good base for gentle flavors, I bet!
This is absolutely delicious! YUMMERS!
The black tea base is perfect – a nice medium strength – but dessert-like in it’s own right. The vanilla is top notch flavoring! Sweet and candy-like almost! The hint of cardamom is a delightful touch and I wouldn’t change the ratio! It’s just enough!
The almonds are sweet, nutty, and near-crusty especially when sniffing the aroma of it all.
I think I will have another cup!
What a treat!
