This was a huge and generous gift from Lori via the take it away thread.
I love hazelnut, so sniffing this tea makes me happy.
WOW that is some strong tea, next time I am brewing it much shorter!
It has yummy morning wake up black tea potential (shorter steep, some milk and sugar)
Post-Steep Additives: sugar, a bit better, could have used some milk
I am fully confident I will like this tea at least as a 50% once I fiddle with it
Reminder, 0-25=BLEH 25-50=ok, will drink but not ordering 50-75=would order if already buying from somewhere and can add to order, or if it’s there in the store nearby 75-100=LOVE
