Age of leaf: Unknown; received this as a free sample after a mishap with shipping.
Packaging: simple transparent bag with a thin cardboard top with the company name and the name of the tea.
Aroma of dry leaf: Very aromatic.
Brewing guidelines: In sixteen-OZ ceramic cup with metal basket strainer; stevia added.
……….1st: Just off the boil; 3’
……….2nd: boiling; 5’
Color and aroma of tea liquor: looks like the color of chocolate and smells like chocolate.
Flavor of tea liquor: Tasty, chocolaty, but some flavor in here doesn’t quite go well with the chocolate.
Overall: It’s, OK, but not what I was hoping for. I like their straight rooibos better than this. Still, not a bad tasting tea.
