Very much looking forward to this sample! Thankyou Angel and Teavivre for this generous sample
I used 4 pearls
Dry smell: like smoky hot chocolate
Appearance: golden amber
Smell wet leaf: almost like a malty milkshake
Taste: Delicious, malty, slightly sweet, smooth. Cocoa notes.
It leaves a wonderfully warm and comforting feeling throughout my body.
Delicious to have that cocoa taste but tastes so natural
2nd steep 1.5min—slight astringency in the aftertaste
I would re-steep some more but it is getting late in the day, I will have to save the leaf for tomorrow morning.
Edit: 3rd steeping from last night’s leaves, 3 minutes. This tea is starting to lose it’s sweetness a little bit but it is still delicious.
I would do more steepings, but I have so many other teas left to review!
