I’d been holding off on writing a tasting note for this one, as I’ve just been struggling to think of something to say.
This is one of the best black teas I’ve ever had. It’s also the sweetest. The one I gave that title to before is Mi Xian Black, but they’re sweet in a different way. Mi Xian Black is sweet in a fruity way, whereas this tea is sweet like SUGAR. Fancy powdered sugar used only on the best of pastries.
If I could afford it, I’d drink this every day. But like Mi Xian Black, it’s a tea I only drink once every two weeks or so, and when I do make it, I re-steep it to get every ounce of sugary yum.
There’s a certain flavor that encircles the powdered sugar taste that I’m having a hard time putting my finger on. I’ve read through some other tastings notes for this tea, and I guess the best way I can think to describe it is that its pastry like, though I’m not sure if that’s quite what it is.
For people wary of getting into black teas, or for people who want a black tea that tastes sinfully good without any additions, this is the one to get! :)
Regardless, it’s wonderfully good. To the point that I’m tempted to say it’s bad just so I can buy up everyone elses share ;)
