12 tasting notes

The dried tea smells like chocolate covered raisins, does anyone else agree?

I really enjoy this tea. I often describe it as tasting like a soft, straight black tea with a sweet warming flavour. I don’t even know if I would be able to tell it was coconuty based on taste alone, but the smell helps give it that coconut flavour.

I often oversteep it and find it a bit bitter. Today I used a lower temperature and only let it steep for 3 mins and 30 seconds. PERFECT!

I don’t ever get that chocolate taste that David’s Tea mentions in it’s description of the tea but it is still very tasty nonetheless!!
