Sample was provided for this review. Thank you, 3 Leaf Tea!

Brewed in a glass test tube steeper. Steeping times: 2 minutes, 4, 6.

The dry leaf aroma smells of malt and gingersnap cookies, while the wet leaf aroma is almost purely cocoa, with a touch of cinnamon. The liquor color is a lovely dark amber. Fuzzies from the leaf float around, and it’s not until the third steeping the infusion is clear. Smooth-textured with a medium body, the liquor has notes of malt, clove, and nutmeg initially. In the second in infusion there is not as much malt, replaced by sweet potatoes. And the spices from before stand out.

Overall, I liked it, but I’m neutral (there is nothing that I dislike about this per se). The dry leaf has a very nice presentation, and the aromas were yummy, but the taste doesn’t really suit me.

My samples arrived pretty quickly. At about the same time as my DVD from Texas, actually. The leaves have that pretty gold hue. There is lovely yam scent, with a bit of sweetness. It has a mostly sweet potato flavour, with hints of honey. I need to try more later to see how well it goes with historical Chinese movies. Because science?

Thanks to 3 Leaf for this sample. :)

Have you tried anything else from their loose leaf selection? I’m intrigued.

I’m having the oolong tomorrow.

I love the yam/sweet potato notes in black teas. I think it was the Bilbo Brew I first had it…so lovely.
