Whenever I make tea for a group of people and ask others which tea they would like to try, they always seemed very surprised when they smell this tea. It smells wonderful, and tastes great.
When I first had this tea, I had been drinking mostly green teas at that time, and thought this was a pleasant change.
When I first took a sip, my tea was still very hot, and I thought it tasted kind of weak. I had a light taste of chocolate combined with the black tea and vanilla. I got just a hint of coconut and cinnamon. As the tea cooled, I think I was able to taste the subtleties in the coconut and cinnamon better. Overall, I thought everything blending very well together.
I made a pot of this for everyone at the office towards the end of the day, and everyone seemed to really enjoy it.
