This tea is easy to love. Full bodied liquor. Malt & cacao notes in the dry leaf. Faintly floral in every steep. Nicely complex, dark body but bright sweetness. Lots to give, flavor just kept developing across several steeps. Not bitter or astringent even if pushed/oversteeped a little.
I really enjoyed this black tea, as it didn't get too bitter or strong within the steeping time like most black teas. The cocoa and maltiness add a pleasurable twist making this tea really enjoyable both on its own or with added dairy. It's now my favorite black tea!
This tea is amazing! It's definitely my new go to tea!
