Tea Review: The Goof (Wild Coast Brew)

The Goof
Wild Coast Brew
Type: Flavored Black, Herbal
Origin: China, India
Product Description:
Defying convention, this brew features notes of chocolate, smoke, and spice. Smoked Lapsang Black Tea blended with Assam Black Tea, cacao husks, smokey chipotle, blackberries, and vanilla reveal an eccentric yet delicious tea.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf blend includes black tea, blackberry leaves, blackberries, vanilla bean, and chipotle flakes.

The bright coppery-red infusion has an aroma of chocolate, spicy peppers, vanilla, and a hint of berries.  The taste is dark and rich with bold notes of cocoa, peppers, and a hint of smoke with berries in the finish.

I was delighted to find that the taste of this tea blend met the promise of the aroma with all the ingredients well-represented.  The mouth-feel was also smoother than expected.  While the fullest flavor was in the initial infusion, the second infusion was also very enjoyable.  

This tea was purchased by me.
