GCTTB Round 6
So this is a pu’erh, but it contains cocoa shells and cinnamon bark.
The little pyramid it came in smells minty fresh, I’m not too sure about the chocolate flavour. There is definitely cinnamon though.
I brewed it for 4 minutes (5-7 recommended) in hot water until the brew was very dark black and smelled delicious. As for taste, I’m getting mint and cinnamon banana bread. It really reminds me of something fresh out of the oven. The pu’erh base isn’t very present because it is overpowered by the cinnamon/baked goods/mint, but I think it tastes a bit woody/barky, and dark, but without being bitter at all. All in all, it is actually fairly smooth. I don’t taste any chocolate, and the cinnamon is leaving a sickly sweet aftertaste in the back of my mouth.
