A resteep! I was thoroughly under the impression that blacks don’t resteep, ever. But then I browsed through some tasting notes on this and saw others had done it successfully, so I guess I’ll be trying resteeps with my favorite blacks.
If possible this smells even more like a cinnamon bun this time around! How is this possible?! It’s even more bready and has the smell of that cinnamon glaze that makes a cinnamon bun so good.
It brews up a little lighter than the first time, but it still seems to have held up. The taste reflects the smell: more bready, strong cinnamon, but definitely not a weak steep at all.
ETA: Cooling doesn’t seem to affect the taste much at all, which means it’s delicious both ways. Good to know!
