Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea

Nice black tea, but not finding the coconut or chocolate. It is especially nice that it's smooth, astringent, but not bitter.

Post-Steep Additives: 1 tsp German rock sugar, a bit sweeter but that's all.

Resteep: not a true resteep, per Steepster notes I saw the suggestion for double strength. I added 1 fresh tsp on top of the 1 tsp already steeped and let it go 4 min.

Smells like coconut, tastes like tea, roommate detects slight coconut aftertaste. I didn't.

Dumped in 1 tsp sweetened coconut milk. Now I have coconut but no chocolate.

Rating: 2/4 leaves

Leaf system:
1=Bleh! not again if it were free
2=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
3=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
4=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
