As with a lot of gourmet teas, this one is not very inexpensive so regardless on how much I love it I cannot just guzzle it. It is a special occasion tea! The aroma is that of chocolate, malt, and roasted rice, I could just sniff this tea for hours. Using Laoshan black with a bit of Oolong makes for a fascinating and extremely decadent cup. Sadly a lot of chocolate teas I have run into taste bitter, but this tea is delightful! A blend of chocolate, malt, caramel, smokiness, and slight earthiness fill your mouth for a sensation you could get lost in.

I found this tea was best black since it has subtle sweetness on its own.
