I have been sitting on this tea and reserving judgement for a couple of months but I think I am almost ready to form an opinion. This tea was not what I thought of when I smelled it and heard chocolate. The base tea shines through a lot stronger than what I had initially expected. This means that it is a much more finicky black than I like to deal with. That being said, when I actually sat down, watched my steep time, and was careful with my water temp, this actually is a pretty great tea. The black tea base is strong, but their is a chocolate note underneath it that is absolutely divine! This tea is really worth a try, but give it a short steep and keep an eye on it!
