Bought two ounces of this yesterday at the store. It is a nice black tea. It is malty and reminds me of a Ceylon black tea. I think it would be good iced too. It has a bit of a chocolate note and little if any bitterness. I like this. It was inexpensive, I think around $4.50 an ounce. At the pleasures of tea she sells quantities as small as one ounce. She also has a sit down tea bar where you can order any of her teas. I had a Japanese black tea while I was there. I didn’t end up buying it because of the price. It was $12 per ounce but was good tea. In general she sells good quality teas.

I brewed this one time in a 24oz cast iron teapot with 4 tsp leaf and 200 degree water for 3 minutes.

Flavors: Chocolate, Malt

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 4 tsp 24 OZ / 709 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
