Casey and I are drinking a pot of this tonight. We are maybe two pots away from a sipdown.
This doesn’t taste as strongly flavored as last time, but I’ve been drinking a lot of flavored teas today. I’m also noticing some vanilla, which I wasn’t sure was present last time I brewed this. It’s also more astringent than I remember it being. I still plan on ordering some of this when I place my big Mariage Frères order in March, mostly because Casey really likes this, but otherwise I probably wouldn’t purchase again.
Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Malt, Tannin, Tobacco, Vanilla
