Scent is plum-sweet, leathery and slightly mineral.

Mild, hint of mint flavour (hopefully not from cross contamination of other teas). Slight charcoal flavour. End of sip reminds me of milk. Plum sweetness. Dark chocolate hint.

Second infusion at 4 minutes. Hint of violet floral flavour.

Brewed tea has a very nicely balanced aroma of black tea and spice. I’m detecting the warm squishy pumpkin aroma as well.

Very mild flavour.

Ensure to mix the dry leaf well as some of the tea flavouring particles will sink to the bottom.

1 tablespoon for 248 ml

Charred note in the aroma. Leafy herb note- reminiscent of cilantro. Sourness.

The charred note carries into the flavour but isn’t as intense as in the aroma- it is very well balanced in the flavour profile, maybe only slight overpowering. The leafy herb note takes more of a vegetal flavour in the background. There is a mineral sweet note near the end of the sip with a slight floral hint. Mouthfeel is slightly brothy. I’m also detecting a custard-like note. I’m also noticing the peach that was mentioned in some other tasting notes. Only slight astringency which mixes well with the rest of the flavours.

This tea reminds me of walking through crunchy leaves in the fall.

Second infusion at 5 minutes. Buttery quality. There is still the charred flavour present but it isn’t as prevalent as in the first infusion. There is an undertone of classic oolong flavour; the grapefruit note that I find with a lot of oolongs.

Third infusion at 6 minutes. The charcoal flavour is subdued and the mineral flavour really pops.

Strong mint flavour. Black tea astringency (a little overwhelming) which blends with the chocolate flavour making it like a dark chocolate. Chocolate itself is quite mild but is reminiscent of Double Chocolate Decadence by 52teas and chocolate cake batter.

As with most black 52teas, the flavour seems to improve as the tea cools.

Thanks to Sil for letting me take a sample!

Very slight cherry flavour. Slight chocolate sweetness. Dark chocolate astringency. There are definite overtones and an aftertaste of artificial chocolate flavour (likened to soapy detergent taste). I am reminded of the taste of Chocolate Chili Chai by DAVIDsTEA.

Sweetness, a little too sugary. Good black tea taste balanced well with the flavour profile.

1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml

Primarily mint flavour with very mild sweet chocolate edge. The mint flavour isn’t too strong. Smooth mouthfeel.

Second infusion at 7 minutes. I made sure to mix the brewing tisane a bit to ensure that the chocolate chips melted. Chocolate flavour is very authentic- dark chocolate taste with a little bit of sweetness. The flavour reminds me of a thick hot cocoa beverage. The mint flavour is unfortunately not as powerful in the second infusion.

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

Try pouring boiling water directly on them. Mine definitely melted fine the last time :)
