The taste of this one is wonderful, to me it is slightly woodsy at first with bold notes of cocoa ,maltyness and maybe caramel, kinda malty and just really super good.
The second and third steep were the best, they were malty and tastes of so much of cocoa it was almost like it was a flavored tea or something and caramel hints with some roasty toasty characteristics of a darker oolong and the flavor was lingering in the mouth with a slight bitter.
by the fourth and 5 steeps it had lost the maltness and caramel hints but the woodsy note is back and the cocoa notes are still there, on the fifth steep a slight “whiskylike” note somehow came about.
Read more and see a few on my blog please :)

I want to get more of this tea, I think it would be superb sweetened with a touch of mint added, mmmmm.

I just ordered this one today so excited to get it. Though it’ll be a while before I drink it. If you saw today’s blog post you will see what I mean.
