Another tea I received from derk, but it is from White Antlers. Thank you both!
I was confused about the aroma of this tea. I have exppected some pu-erh chocolatey notes, but it is indeed rather on tobacco side as derk said. It is even bit cinnamony and raisins, which is indeed weird while it contains only black tea and cocoa.
While brewed, I had it actually pretty much same as previous rater. Yep, aiming for 4 minutes, but actually 6.
The tate was pretty much medicore bold black tea while sipping quite hot, but as it cools down, the flavours started to be interesting.
At first, I wasn’t sure if it is cocoa as it was quite raisin and maybe cherries. But as I said, it was cooling donw and when it was lukewarm I get the cocoa notes! I have expected some stronger notes and mostly I imagined it will be bit more like hot chocolate, but it isn’t that sweet and cloying hot chocolate. Maybe you think I think it is dismal for me, but actually it isn’t. I am glad it is not like that, as bar of chocolate isn’t always dominantly chocolate but good chocolate is having different flavours too. Even that cherry seems good for me.
Seems bit pricey though!
