Got a sample in my last Davids Tea order. For no other reason than laziness this afternoon I decided to brew this sample. It was sitting right there on the counter so….
It smells really really good. Dry and brewed. Sipping on it and I’m pretty surprised at how rich and dark it is. I had Glitter and Gold last night and these two are like completely different animals…mostly just based on the heft of it. Glitter and Gold was really light and sweet with cinnamon and spice…This is dark and heavy with spice..a little chocolate. Not getting so much coconut…but I placed the cup down on the coffee table next to my daughter who is 4 and she said…“what smells like a nutty coconut?”
It is dark and we….stormy…but it’s really good. It isn’t bitter at all and barely any detectable astringency if any. I’m tempted to add a little milk but not sugar…
Anyway it’s a pretty good brew…Probably better for a morning cup..it’s stout. But really good all the same.
