I wanted a rich, black tea this morning and found myself reaching for this blend. To be honest, it’s one of the richest teas that I’ve come across, so certainly it didn’t disappoint.
I never noticed how short a steep is recommended before, but it doesn’t surprise me. This tea, despite having only three ingredients, gets saturated very fast, and certainly it’s teetered on being too bold for me before, with longer steeps.
As it is, the tea is musky, the chocolate and caramel creating a dark but sweet flavour profile alongside the tea itself. At two and a half minutes, it’s a lot milder than it could be, but it’s just about as strong as it needs to be to get the message across deliciously.
The perfect choice for this morning indeed. Yum.
