I used 1.5 David’s Tea scoops for my Aqua-Ovo tea tumbler.
The smell of the dry leaf really reminds me of “Love Tea #7” by David’s Tea.
The aroma of the brewed tea is primarily a light chocolate with definite black tea undertones.
On the sip I am getting a full chocolately taste. I am getting a bit of a vegetable-earthy taste- kind of like taking a bite out of a red pepper. I’m guessing that this is the result of the different types of chili included in the blend. I don’t feel that the earthy taste really complements this mix, especially with such a strong chocolate taste. The black tea taste is mostly present at the end of the sip and rounds out the chocolate/earthy flavour. There is a little bit of spice present on the beginning of the sip and in the aftertaste (kind of a tingly feeling on my tongue).
This tea was good all the way through even as it cooled to room temperature.
