This is a super creamy tea. It brews dark with an almond nuttiness and just a hint of a floral aroma. It's not too thick but has a well rounded body in the mouth. There is a bitterness that teases you but melts right away into a caramel sweetness. Smooth drinking chocolate and nuttiness defines this tea. Lovely stuff!
Use 5-10 grams of leaves and brew with 75-150ml ( 2.5-5oz ) of water at or near boiling. Rinse once for a few seconds. Start with quick steeps under 10s. With each re-steep adjust the steep time to your taste.
