Flavor profile is dominated by savory notes that hint at sweetness, but never quite get there. Primary flavors of carob, raw hazelnut, and peanut skins. Persistent slight nutty bitterness chased by carob savory and half-hearted sweetness.
There is a little whisper of dried date in there, along with coffee grounds and maybe even hints of bread pudding.
Can’t say that I recommend this one, but probably worth exploring if you are into liu bao.
