Happy Saturday, Steepster! I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far. This sample came from Ubacat, my Canadian tea friend with amazing postal powers! Seriously though, her package got here in four days. I believe I’ve had this tea before, but it’s been so long that I feel the need to try it again! The leaves are small and thin, and extremely dark in color. Dry scent has lovely cocoa notes along with hay or raw grains.
Mm, the steeped cup smells chocolaty and delicious! Yums. This is a lovely rich and flavorful tea! Strong notes of roasted grain and chocolate (somewhere between milk and dark). There’s also a savory rye bread flavor as well as some creamy nuttiness. I think next time I’ll try a 4 minute steep, I think this one can handle it. Yummy tasty roasty and chocolaty tea! :)
