7 tasting notes

I woke up feeling exhausted and shaky this morning; I had forgotten I had a bag of this tea in my cupboard and figured it was exactly the right morning for it! I like it a lot. It’s very warm and comforting (of course, I mean it as more than the hot water kind of warm…). Very caffeinated, too, as you can guess from the name. If, like me, you are used to several cups of coffee per day along with your teas and infusions, it shouldn’t be a problem.
The taste is a little smokey, very earthy. Along with the coffee, there’s also a little cocoa and caramel, but it’s not overly sweet in a way lots of teas from DAVID’s are. It’s strong, but smooth, like a careful bear hug from a friend wearing a very cozy sweater. It wasn’t quite enough to wake me up this morning – perhaps because I lacked time to finish my cup – but it was a true comfort. I’d recommend it as a nice dessert tea, or for especially rough mornings.
