Amount: 1 pyramid bag
Water: boiling, 12oz
Steep Time: a little over 2 minutes, I ignored their recommended 5 minute steep
Dry Leaf Smell: chocolate and chestnut
Steeped Tea Smell: chestnut, black tea, hints of coco
Flavor: smooth black tea, hints of nuts
Aftertaste: slightly astringent
Liquor: opaque dark brown
Please note the sample I got at World Tea East has different ingredients than listed on the website.
I am not sure where I was getting the chocolate smell from!
I did enjoy this cup, it was a nice warm fall feeling (which I needed since Texas is hot).
