Flavor is primarily toasty and sweet.

Almost reminds me of baked dessert bread sweetened with spice and honey.

The body of the tea is probably moderate, or maybe even a little on the light side.

A slight note of kumquat fruit develops later on.

Flavor notes: Malt, vanilla, dark honey, cocoa nibs, raisins, kumquat and wet moss.
