Served in a teapot with a t-sac
Steep Time: over 2 minutes (I let it sit 2 minutes after it arrived at the table)
Steeped Tea Smell: indistinguishable spice, hints of chocolate
Flavor: black tea, cinnamon
Aftertaste: astringent, a touch bitter
Liquor: translucent dark brown (amber)
The tea was good, and the chocolate croissant was warmed and went very well on that cold night. I wasn’t getting strong notes of chocolate, but it was a nice smooth spiced tea.
Not something I would miss if it were off the menu, but I might pair it with a chocolate croissant again some night.
