I used 1.5 tablespoons of dry leaf for 375ml of water.
The aroma of the brewed tea is very maple syrup-y. I can smell a mellow sweetness and creaminess of the chocolate and possibly a hint of black tea.
On the sip, there is a sweetness all the way though which increases into the aftertaste. I am detecting an earthiness that is likely sourced from the beetroot powder. Creamy-tasting. The dark chocolate flavour mixes well with the black tea and earthy taste. Drinking this tea reminds me of biting into a dense, moist chocolate cake.
This tea pairs well with brie and raspberry jam on crackers.
