I’m just finishing up the infusion of 3 of these balls or PEARLS and am REALLY excited to try this!!!!
At first I could smell – ever-so-slightly – something that smelled fruity but like cocoa. This completely intrigued me!
While infusing…it smells a little like cocoa…but very slight. The wet leaves smell like Assam.
The taste is very unique. They mention ‘chocolate’ in the description…I would say it would be a dark chocolate because it is really bold and – well – dark. It’s not really sweet. There is a tad of bitterness to it but I am comparing that to a dark chocolate type bitterness.
I can ‘find’ the apple comparison they spoke of. And I can taste a bit of oak or other like woodsy type taste.
This is VERY Malty! Even in the aftertaste.
What a FUN tea! Nifty!!!!
