Started with this tea this morning. Picked it up on the suggestion of the tea guy behind the counter as it was the best way to “kick coffee”. He also told me to steep it for at least 6 minutes, which is way longer than any other tea I have ever made. I don’t think that was a bad choice at all. I added 3 tsp of the tea along with 2 tsp of rock sugar. This tea is amazing! Very rich and full of chocolate flavor, but not in a sweet way but more of a dark and smoky kind. There is a sharpness that lingers on the my tongue that I just can’t place. I can’t wait to find out what this is. The guy behind the counter also suggested trying it with about 1 part water and 1 part milk to give the tea an even richer taste. I will have to give this a try to see if he is right about this one as well.
