Another night up with an unhappy tummy. This seemed to help a bit, and on top of that was tastier than I’d remembered. I noticed the chocolate notes more, which tasted like very dark (maybe 90%) chocolate that had burnt onto a baking tray, but without the harshness or astringency you might expect. After a few sips the chocolate flavors gave way to wood and roasted grains, while the mouthfeel remained creamy throughout. It’s almost like hot cocoa for grown-up palates that don’t like sweets – I just about fell asleep drinking this. Definitely reconsidering my “I only really like green oolongs” stance now.
Flavors: Chocolate, Dark Bittersweet, Roasted Barley, Wood
