Okay so I admit I thought this was going to be chocolatey. Looked up how to brew it on the website and read the description. I wish my little sample pack had come with brewing instructions/more information. However, it was wrapped very nicely and came with a lovely quote. :)

So this is my first grain tea and I was really surprised at how dark it brewed! I didn’t think grains would produce that deep of a color, but then I thought about beer. It’s a deep chocolate color but not opaque. Smells sweet and of course malty. The description mentions coffee flavor which makes me a bit wary.

Tasting it… eh. I don’t like it. It’s not bad, the taste is just not my thing. However, I brought it over to the fiancé who loves coffee and he said it smelled like and gave it the stamp of approval, saying it has a “light coffee flavor”. Bonus for him is that it’s caffeine free which is the reason he stopped drinking coffee in the first place. So, no rating from me but he likes it!
