VERY strong, dark cocoa, malty-goodness! This is a solid tea! There is a touch of smooth – much like honey – playing around on the tongue – while I sip.
The 2nd infusion isn’t as brash. I do like both infusions, however. I like the sturdiness of the first one but I like the toned-down cocoa notes paired with a sweeter honey or ‘mead’ taste in the 2nd infusion as well!
This is a mighty-fine tea!
