I managed not to accidently add milk to the cup this time around. The impressions that I got from the previous steeping remain the same – raw cocoa powder with a bit of smokiness. It’s a little harsh and bitter for my tastes, so next time I might try reducing the steeping temperature by a minute and seeing if that helps at all. Still nothing that I’d liken to orchid, although I am getting like glimpses of sweetness, but this is mostly overshadowed by the bitterness.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
