I got this is a swap with CharlotteZero! So, thank you so much!
There’s a lot of smoke and leather in the aroma of the brewed cup, but it doesn’t transfer into the flavor as strongly as I’d feared (though it definitely does). It’s actually slightly winey, with a tart fruit note in the back of the sip and a little bit of sweetness is present as well. It has a cooling sensation in my mouth, despite being piping hot.
Overall, this is a pretty good cup. I’m just unsure if it’s something I could see keeping on hand.
