Longer infusion time did not increase the chocolate flavour in the tea. Probably advisable to infuse 1.5 tbsp for 375 ml.
Very little flavour with these parameters.

This tea was able to withstand boiling but I think there is more flavour complexity when brewed at a lower temperature.

Dry leaf has a peppery scent. Earthy-woodsy tone. Medium thick mouth feel. Sour-type wheat-y note close to the end of the sip.

Second infusion at 2:45 gave me a bit of a buzz. I’ve never experienced this with tea before and I’ve never even been sensitive to caffeine. I had trouble sleeping afterwards which may be attributed to this tea.
