This came in my March Sips By box. I was kinda underwhelmed with mine this month (ugh, more turmeric — I should retake my quiz), but we’ll see how I like what I got.
The leaves are tiny and most are broken. They are very dark and fine. Teas like this are often very strong, so I was conservative with my teaspoon and my steep time.
The flavor is lighter than I expected, which is kind of a good thing. I’m getting notes of cocoa and toast. Well, maybe more like a honey biscuit than toast. While there is some astringency, I’m kind of surprised at how mild this tastes. Easy sipping first thing in the morning. All around, though, this is pretty middle-of-the-road. Nothing really stands out about it to me. But I’m happy to have it.
Flavors: Cocoa, Honey, Toast, Toasted
