I wanted to pick some of this up last time I visited Peet’s. I finally did this time around.
The tea has a very high tippy concentration. Some leaves were completely golden, while others only had golden traces on them. The dry leaves smelled chocolaty, and like muscatel. The steeped leaves smelled leathery, like muscatel, and almost woody. The golden tips transformed into a dark brown.
The brewed tea was a dark coppery brown. It smelled buttery, slightly sweet, and slightly malty. It smelled very good. It tasted slightly smokey, malty, and brisk.
This tea was delicious. I wouldn’t use it as a breakfast tea, though. It was not as brisk as a breakfast tea. This tea would be good in the afternoons, or before lunch.
