This is such an incredible tea, really unlike any other black tea I’ve had before.
The cacao flavour is so perfectly in-your-face and that’s the whole flavour profile. Like a perfect liquified tea chocolate. There’s no astringency and no smokiness. Just cacao. The darkest of chocolate. I generally resteep this twice for three steeps total and it’s delicious each and every time. I’m enjoying this one today as I write up a lab report on Daphnia magna toxicity testing.
For reference, I use four pearls for my 14-ounce mug and steep 5 minutes, 6.5 minutes, and 8 minutes.
