Before I begin it should note this tea is now 13 years old and can be found on the website as such. I’m not sure how to entirely feel about this tea it was interesting for the short session it provides invoking a complex mix of sweetness, bitterness and earthy tones on the palate. The session lasted 3 solid steeps after that it diminished fast. I’ll add that I threw in 2 teaspoons of cocoa shells because I felt it would mix well at steep 5 and it gave it a bit more life. For next time I’ll probably throw it in on steep one. It defiantly adds to the flavor profile well.
So can I recommend it? If your ok with a short session, yes. If your like me and drink tea for hours on end throughout the day, no.
