frenchvanilla sent me some of this to try. Thanks so much!!!

I’m not sure about the smell of this…not gonna lie, I thought the smell was coming from my dinner (breaded chicken, mashed potatoes, biscuit) at first, and then I realized, no, it’s coming from the teapot. o.O So, yeah…this smells very savory to me!!

It tastes very toasted coconut to me, though it seems more strongly toasted than coconut. Not really getting much on the cocoa side, but it’s there in the aftertaste. Still can’t believe how much this smells like my dinner! I think I’ll hold off on rating it for now…and will try steeping for 10 minutes as well.

I pretty much agree with everything you said here – very savory, very toasty. I think of it as a barley tea, actually (and like it for that). Not very dessert-like IMO!

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
