T&C TTB Round 2
This seems very, very musky and strongly muscatel in flavor. It’s very pleasant. I am not sure I would keep it on hand but if I ran across it I’d pick some up.

Today’s first pick from the T&C TTB. People on Steepster seem to really love this one, so I gave it a go for myself. Something must have gone terribly wrong because for some reason, I got a whiff of something that smelled like egg? And then after that, I just couldn’t get the thought of egg out of my head while I was drinking the tea. I did definitely taste the malty flavor everyone talked about, though. That was nice, but the whole time I was too distracted by the weird egg smell that I don’t think I appreciated this tea much. I won’t leave a rating since no one else seems to have had this problem, but I think I’m a little too scared to give it a round 2.
