I am getting this flavor better today than the last time I tasted this tea. My taste buds were just off. However, I still don’t like it as much as I thought I would. Perhaps I just expected too much from a tea called Smores. I get an undercurrent of chocolate and the flavor of marshmallows. I can even taste the cinnamon. I don’t really taste the rooibos in here. I was expecting something more chocolaty but it is good. I am not tasting the sour notes I was getting last time anyway. We underestimate how much our own taste buds effect the taste of our teas. I have bought teas that tasted incredible the first time I drank them, then gone back to them later to find the just bleh, and this one was puerh so it hadn’t gone stale. This time I did enjoy this tea.
I brewed this tea once in an 18oz teapot with 200 degree water and 3 tsp leaf for 3 min.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Marshmallow
