It has a strong, odd smell and brews up very dark, almost coffee-level black. The taste is strong with multiple notes of cocoa, malt, and leather. It’s not really one of my favorites (I never really like teas that have a fragrance or taste of leather), but I can see that it is a good quality tea.

Hey! You’re alive! I was beginning to wonder if we should send out a search party. I hope the trip went well!

Pity you’re not liking this tea more. I’ve been brewing it a little short of 4 minutes lately – somewhere around 3:30, 3:45. Maybe that would help? It does have a rather distinct aroma, though.

Trip was fantastic. If you ever have a chance to go to the Chicago Institute of Art, you should seize the chance.

I will likely try it again. I usually try a tea twice to make sure it isn’t just my own weird mood. I’ll take your suggestion and reduce the brew time.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
