Still a little confused by this one. I understand the idea and in the 2nd infusion I am ‘getting’ the earthy cocoa comparison but it’s still a little bitter…and this time a little musky. I will say I like the 2nd infusion better than the first. It’s still very dark in color. I think I am going to try for another infusion since there was a major difference in the 1st and 2nd infusions. Based on this difference I am going to say there is a 5 to 10 point increase with my rating. So…I am going to officially rate it at 75 but no higher at this time. However, I am going to continue to try and figure this diddy out.
Yes, I am giving it a few points for being tricky and messing with my head…lol…it’s MY review and I can do that if I want! LOL teahee…the FUN of Steepster folks! It’s all what you make it! I love a challenging tea (good, bad, or indifferent – great conversation pieces!)
