I perpetually bounce around with my feelings on this tea, because I think it’s weird. My attitude on whatever day determines if that’s good weird or bad weird on a given day. Tonight is good weird.
There’s a lingering licorice root type of sweetness to the cup that counteracts most of the spice in the cup, but leaves just enough cayenne kick to tickle the back of my throat. There’s a lot of ginger flavor here as well, but the licorice is easily the dominating flavor. I like the cup a lot more as it cools as the sweetness lightens slightly and the cayenne packs more punch. I don’t really get much in the way of cocoa, but I want to try brewing this up in a cup of hot chocolate some night to see what that does for me.
