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.
