The dry leaf of this tea smells like a dark chocolate bar with a hint of coffee. I am a big coffee drinker, so this smells quite good to me: dark, sweet, strong. After water has been added, it seems like the tea comes out quite a bit more and lends more of a sweet, roasted note. There is still a touch of chocolate in the background, but the tea itself is really the strongest.

Sipping… This is quite nice! It reminds me quite a lot of coffee with a hint of dark chocolate. I’m also picking up some caramel notes and a bit of wheat from the tea. This tea has a richness to it that I appreciate, but I’m not sure if it’s because of the coffee/dark chocolate flavors or if it’s because of a weird ingredient. When I think about buying more, the idea of finishing off more of this tea seems a bit daunting… strange because I don’t entirely get the sensation of, “this tea is too much, just a few sips is good enough!” I’ll give this tea another try to see if I can flesh that out a bit more.

This is quite a unique tea that is nothing like I’ve sipped in the past. I think it would be a good choice for coffee lovers or for those who like darker, deeper flavors in their tea.
