Tea of the morning here, a sample I got from Adagio. The reviews here seem to run quite a range between very positive and very negative!
So sipping this plain I am getting a lot of cocoa notes at first, followed by something in the finish that reminds me of a keemun, I think it’s a slight tobacco taste. In the middle I am getting some of the fruity notes other people have mentioned. Adagio recommends steeping this for 3-5 minutes so I did mine for 4 minutes which I think is way too long for this tea. I have a suspicion it might be much better at the two minute mark. I think I will avoid rating this for now.
