Ooooooh! We have a winner here!!!! It’s not exactly like my beloved Silk Road Tea’s Imperial Red, but it is close enough. It is a little less roasty, and not nut buttery, but chocolatey. Smooth as anything. I love it! I could seriously drink this tea every day. I let my coworker taste it and she said “Woooooooooow!”
I again completely ignored the steeping directions from the shop, and steeped it like Imperial Red. I thought it worked like a charm! No bitterness or astringency at all.
