|"Strong enough for a breakfast tea. Add some cream and sugar and you get a decadent desert tea. Highly recommended."|
My sample consists of longer wiry tea leaves that range in color from gold to a cocoa brown. There a lot a gold tips in my sample which bodes well. The aroma is sweet and has a hint of caramel to it. I set up my Breville with 5 teaspoons of leaves, a water temp of 212 degrees and a steep time of 3 minutes.
It brews up a deep reddish brown and the aroma now is one of cocoa, caramel with a hint of malt. Taken straight it is fairly smooth with a bit of a bite at the end. It also has an aftertaste of caramel. Since Culinary Teas recommends trying this tea with cream and sugar I did. Oh what a change in taste. Now it reminds me of a thin hot chocolate. Totally decadent and delicious!
I am definitely going to have to pick up some of this tea. I just love the idea of a good strong desert tea as a wake me up. And it doesn't hurt that the prices are so reasonable. Under seven for a 4 ounce bag of tea.
