This tea is interesting because it tastes like a thick coffee, with hints of chocolate and also some bitterness here and there. It definitely gains some harshness as it cools, but while it’s still hot, it has an excellent flavor and really lovely aftertaste.
I think that this would give any die-hard coffee drinker whip lash. I wish I knew a few because I’d love to try to turn their heads by brewing some up for them. Alas, the only really dedicated coffee connoisseur I know was my ex-boyfriend, who moved to Alaska after we broke up.
Oh well. More shou for me! :p
