So, I’m not sure I can properly rate or review this tea, because I had trouble with brewing it and I shared some with my coworker as it was her last day with us today. Initially, I brewed it, and when I added milk, the milk had soured in the cup, and curdled in it, so I decided to ditch it. The water I brought back wasn’t warm enough on the second steep, so it was really weak. Third attempt I used the bags from both of us and heated water from the kettle. this time seemed alright, but I lost track of time at work and may have steeped it too long.
So, I don’t think I had a proper cuppa to review, but here’s what I’ll say. It smelled sweet and like honey and chocolate. It was a slightly smoky, but mostly dark chocolate and some honey tones that the sugar and milk brought out.
Thanks to Fong Mong for providing me with this sample!
I have to say, and be honest, that it tasted a lot like a number of good quality black teas I drink, and in a blind taste test, I’m not sure I could identify each one solely on taste. But this was good, for what I was able to have, and my coworker enjoyed hers too.
