Excellent blend. In the bag, you can smell the chocolate and vanilla. In the cup, it’s a touch earthy with a slightly sweet taste. Not overly sweet, but just enough to give you a little treat. I have a cup with my breakfast when I need a pick-me-up from the black tea, but want a sweeter taste. I can definitely imagine the caped crusader having a cup before starting his day. Steep at 180 for 6 minutes.
