From TeaSource

Roasted cocoa is the aroma of this gorgeous, wiry, twisted leaf. The steeped cup is deep, rich, toasty, slightly sweet, and completely satisfying. This unique black tea is only available in limited quantities.

Here’s Hoping Traveling Teabox – Round #5 – Tea #17
Interesting leaves here – they look like like a silky wiry Fujian but the leaves are very tiny coils with hints of gold. I haven’t seen a leaf like this before! I love the flavor – it’s a little like a Fujian black tea but more malty molasses. That is exactly the type of flavor I love. The brew doesn’t seem very strong either. It’s on the sweeter side rather on an astringent side. I feel like I’ve only tried a tea that tasted like this a couple times before but the leaves didn’t look quite like this. The second steep was a little lighter, which is a shame. This one is unique! Another tea company I’ve never heard of before. I love when those are included in teaboxes. :D Their site has quite the selection!
Steep #1 // 1 tsp // 10 minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minutes
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3 min

From the Here’s Hoping TTB

I wanted to like this tea. The initial introduction was a whiff of molasses in the aroma. The taste had highlights of sweet potato and perhaps a hint of chocolate. The flavor was big and full, with a long, strong finish.

So, what went wrong? The main flavor is very dark and just this side of bitter. Not sure how to describe it, but tar might be close. It just doesn’t appeal to me. If you like this kind of dark flavor, you might really like this tea, since it seems well-made and is fairly complex. Just not for me.
