I found my favorite way to have this tea. I cold-brewed 4 gms in 12 oz water for about 10 hrs, and all I can say is yum, just yum! I really picked up on the chocolate notes. I’m sorry that I can’t describe it more effectively. Previously, when I had it hot, I preferred it Gong fu style over Western, but I’ve found the flavor to be much richer and more satisfying cold-brewed. Plus, there is no astringency or bitterness. As a result, I’ll bump up the rating. I already have another one steeping for tomorrow!
