I'm not going to try to use all of the foodies' descriptors to characterize this tea. I've not tasted chocolate in a tea or hints of anything. I will say, though, that this is one of my wife's favorite teas, alongside Sherpa Breakfast, and Llotse Black, all of which happen to come from this tea company! Yes, she still loves her Keemun Hao Ya, but these Nepali teas are her go-to teas. They have that subtle something that transports the drinker to some more serene world. Want to de-stress? Take a sip of this tea and close your eyes.
