So warm and comforting this morning! Perfect amount of malt with a feel of chocolate. So glad I figured out how to steep this and wrote it on the side of the tin!

A paean to love.
This glamorous blend is steeped in the passion that weds the malty power of golden Assam tea leaves to the sweetness of notes of chocolate and caramel.
Evidence of a peerless marriage.

Smelled nice dry. Though I didn’t really care for this after it was brewed. It might’ve been just the way I brewed it, but this was a little too bitter for me. I could very faintly taste a bit of caramel after adding sugar, but I just couldn’t get past the bitterness. Ah well. Not bad to try from a swap.
I got a tin of this last Christmas and saved it until my wedding in June. It’s almost gone now. I love it. It smells incredible – chocolate and caramel. It tastes incredible too. I drink it sweetened with milk because it’s already so indulgent, I just bask in the sumptuous sweetness. On that note, I’m really careful not to over-steep it. Anything over five minutes starts to bring out the tannins. I give it four minutes, 45 seconds on the clock to give me time to run over and remove the leaves before it hits five minutes.
This is one of my favorite teas and it is hard for me to find where I am so I stock up when I can! I love the taste. If you do not like to drink your tea strong then you need to brew this tea on the lighter side as it can tend to be strong and overpowering for some tastes. For me I love it that way. It is a sweet tea and I love that I do not have to add anything to it.
