This is a tasty black tea with only a little in the way of bitterness or astringency. The first note I detect is malt, very strong, but somehow not overpowering. Behind the malt is a note of chocolate or cocoa, not sure which is a better description. I only brewed this western style and I’m getting a lot of flavor and a lot of complex notes, very tasty.
I brewed this once in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 3 min.
Flavors: Chocolate, Malt
