[Autumn 2018 harvest]

This is a nice fairly robust and medium to full bodied black tea with a very distinctive chocolate note in both aroma and taste.

The tea indeed smells mostly of chocolate, complemented by slightly earthy and vegetal aromas, as well as a tomato scent. The taste is strongly reminiscent of cocoa beans and very sweet. There are also weaker notes of sawdust, red pepper, roasted barley and in the finish grapefruit skin too. Aftertaste is still sweet with flavours like roasted squash, strawberry, wood, and honey emerging. It is very long lasting and fragrant overall, probably the highlight of the tea for me. I quite like the mouthfeel too, which is slimy, fleeting and mouth-watering.

Flavors: Bell Pepper, Butternut Squash, Chocolate, Citrus, Cocoa, Dark Chocolate, Grapefruit, Honey, Roasted, Roasted Barley, Sawdust, Strawberry, Sweet, White Chocolate, Wood

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
