Mistakenly over-poured two full teaspoons, hence the “rabbit blood” (as they say in Turkish) red of the steeped tea. Anyways, this smells like wafery chocolate-ish when steeped, which is not overly sweet smelling. Smell mixes nice with the astringent quality of the Ceylon. Will try with a smaller spoon next time.

Preparation
