All of these black teas from Teavivre have been KILLER. This one is no exception. The dry leaf looks itself looks and smells incredible. Once steeped, the tea has a reddish brown color, and I can ACTUALLY detect notes of chocolate in the taste. Most of the time when I read the “notes” people detect, I think it’s mostly bogus, because I can never pick up on anything, it just tastes like tea. But with this one, again, I could actually taste chocolate. So that was cool.
