This is exactly what a breakfast blend should taste like. It’s malty and a bit chocolatey.
I can understand how folks might put milk in this, however, not I. A bit of honey is the perfect addition.
It’s a beautiful dark amber color with just the right amount of astringency. This could turn into a morning favorite easily.
I must also say, the 2nd steeping is as good as the first.
A bit of a warning: this tea is a lot like coffee grounds. Find a good steeping basket with very fine mesh.
