Today is DEFINITELY the day to review this tea. I woke up at 6:20 this morning to help out at work. Arrived at 7:30, left at 2:30, took the dog on a long walk, and am now (3:40) settling in for a my team’s football game. Can I survive 3-4 hours of football, or will I melt into a nap-puddle under my Tardis blanket?
While I wait for the caffeine to settle in, I can definitely taste a smoky tea as well as a citrus note. There’s a tiny little floral element, but it’s only the slightest of hints. I can’t taste cacao at all. It might be folding into the depth of the black tea. If you like a bold, rugged, earthy tea, this one might be for you.
4:10 update: still going strong.
7:00 update: after 1 20-minute micronap, 1 beer, 1 mixed drink, and 1 soda, I am feeling wide-awake. I did, to be fair, take a quick nap in there, and the soda was caffeinated. I should probably test it again under more controlled circumstances. Today was strange in a bunch of ways (wake-up time, nap, two drinks). However, I don’t think I normally feel nearly this good at 7 p.m. during a long day like this with such a tiny nap. I’m pretty sure the tea helped.
