Smells nutty and a little like cocoa in the bag. I thought this was a pretty straight forward, good tasting black tea. The person I drank it with, who is near impossible to impress, really liked it and put this at the top of her favorites. Pretty good for iced tea with sugar too. I have been using 5 or 6 “pearls” per cup lately, this seems to bring out a toasty taste I wasn’t getting when I was using less of them.
Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 45 sec

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
