This tea is more astringent than I’d imagined, but that truly doesn’t detract from its appeal.
With chunks or raspberries and plenty of chocolate shavings mixed in this dark colored loose tea has plenty of aroma to share.
Once brewed, it’s amber-maple liquor gives off plenty of light chocolate notes and some raspberry sweetness. The flavor contains notes of a spiciness I didn’t catch in the aroma, wet or dry.
It’s worth noting that I tried this tea with milk at the suggestion of another consumer on the 52teas website and I enjoyed it even more this way!
I would recommend this tea to fans of fruit teas, keemun teas, rooibos and those who enjoy adding sweeteners and/or milk to their beverages.
