I’m surprised someone hadn’t put this in the catalog yet. I am at least a month behind on my Global Tea Hut samples. This one was from March. It was quite good. I would definitely buy more of this if it were available. It was slightly malty in the start. It was somewhat chocolaty. It just had a nice flavor to it, not too strong, not too weak. Global tea hut tends to send good stuff. I have been considering discontinuing my subscription because they send so little tea for a comparatively high price. Although the magazine is very nice. Once and a while they send a worthwhile gift but most of the time the gift is cheesy to say the least, usually some kind of postcard or photo. This tea was really good though. If you count the magazine as half the subscription price, then you are paying about 60 to 70 cents a gram for the tea as they send between 12g and maybe 15g if your lucky. Generally about two tea sessions worth is what you get.
I brewed this twelve times in a 120ml gaiwan with 7.1g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 5 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.
Flavors: Chocolate, Malt
