Excited to try. I opened the bag and smelled the small dark curled leaves and instantly thought of chocolate. The dry leaves smell so good!
I’m going to brew this western style. Three minutes in boiling water. Here goes nothing!
The liquor is a light golden brown and smells sweet like chocolate but also reminds me of barley. This tastes like it smells to me. Creamy, smooth, sweet, chocolaty. Its amazing. The wet leaves smell so strongly of dark chocolate and something I can’t quite put my finger on.. Hm.
Second steep: Sweeter and smoother than the first. Honey! I’m drinking these cups so fast because it’s so delicious.
This tea is just so smooth and delicious. I could drink it all day. I will definitely be buying more.
