I desperately want to love this tea. Or even, just like it a lot. But I can’t seem to get there. There are so many aspects that i love, the rich dark chocolate, the malt, the roast, the sweet… but there is one flavor in there that just kills it for me. I don’t know if I’d describe it as earthy, or mushroomy or maybe even blue cheesy (I don’t like blue, goat, stinky cheese), just funky. It is a note that is also present in Golden Fleece and therefore I don’t like golden fleece much either. I brewed this gongfu to see if I could isolate the flavor, but nope, it’s just there. In every steep. Ugh. So much potential.
