Finishing a not-too-shabby amount of work today, I decided to stop, probably for the day, put on some Opeth, think about what to make for supper, and try something new tea-wise.
Promises of sweet potato, malt, chocolate, and honey notes initially drew me in when I ordered this back in the fall. As soon as I ripped open the packet and took a whiff, the expression on my face must have changed when I smelled sweet smoke. Smoke. Not a favourite note. But it’s not overwhelming. But still, where are the aforementioned notes?
This tastes very similar to the smell. Actually, the sweetness is coming out as it cools. There’s the syrupy honey in the background. I appreciate how this lacks astringency. Hmm ok, well out comes the chocolate, but it’s quite dull. Smoky chocolate with an emphasis on smoke.
Glad I opted for no more than a sample.
