This literally tastes like spiced cocoa/powder.
I don’t really think it’s as smooth as the product description says it is but I like it being spiced. It has crusty notes to it, too – a lot like semi-burnt toast which I also happen to enjoy.

This one is a goodie, too!

Sipdown! 832. Thanks to Indigobloom for this one.

I found this to be a fairly decent black, but nothing super special. There were some cocoa notes (yum!) and it was smooth and malty, but it’s pretty tough for anything to beat Laoshan Black and Premium Taiwanese Assam, so although it was definitely good quality, it’s not a tea I’d pick up myself.

Stellar! Quite enjoyable. Definitely getting the toast reference, though I first interpreted it as soft leather.
Since this was my first taste, I sipped both with and without milk. Without, it’s refreshing and earthy with a rather floral and delicately fresh note similar to something I experienced last week in another tea. Only this time it’s much milder. It’s quite lovely.
There is also a slight honey note in there that stands out on odd sips. Not really getting any cocoa like the description says, sadly. I had really hoped for that. Oh well, it’s still great!
With milk, that floral freshness really pops. Now I wish I had more than a sample.

Yummmmmm

Smells really fresh in the packet. Robust, yet smooth mouthfeel. I kind of get notes that remind me of whole wheat toast, but there is something else going on I cant quite place. Now that it is cooling down I’m getting some roasted nut like notes as well. Really good for iced tea, would buy it again for this purpose.
