The aroma of this tea is wonderful! The chocolate is pronounced and you can smell the spice. Unfortunately, the smell does not match the taste. I don’t know if I brewed this wrong, but it seems to be pretty weak. I even added more tea leaves and made sure the water was at a sufficient temperature. It got a bit darker, but not much. I was hoping this one would be full bodied. I’m glad this was a sample, otherwise I would have been sorely disappointed.
