First/only steeping: 3.5 minutes at 200 degrees.
While hot, Red Lily has a chocolate and malt aroma. The predominate flavors are cocoa with essences of malt, carob, pepper, and a subdued spiciness. As the cup cools, the spiciness comes forward and a suggestion of plum appears. The cocoa remains true throughout the cup and pairs wonderfully with the spiciness as the liquor changes temperature.

Notes:
Because this is a rolled tea, I under-leafed my cup. Next time I will add more leaf to see if I can coax out different nuances.
