It brews up with a red-black liquor that has a complex fragrance of tea, grass, chocolate and toast. It has a nice sharpness that I don’t mind. I’m not sure whether that is because it is not just sharp but that the sharpness is part of a pleasant package of aromas and flavors or whether I am just in the mood for a sharp tea today. I don’t taste the hints of nutmeg, but it is a very rich tea.
I ran out of Silk Creamer last night so I whipped up my own creamer from raw cashew nuts, coconut milk, soy milk, and a drop of honey. It turned out quite nice. It made a thick soothing cream. The overtones of coconut complement the tea nicely.
