Three entries of same tea. I decided to use this one.
Huge bags section after loooong time. A tea bag. A tea that old, that Ahmad doesn’t offer it anymore in the Czech Republic.
The bag was in foil wrapping, so I have hoped it will be still quite fresh. It wasn’t much overpowering when I have opened that outer wrapping, but it’s black tea blend! I took a sniff on the bag and noticed citruses. Not sure if bergamot, it was rather lemony for me, but again it’s old!
I went for two and something minutes steep and mug was filled with dark brown (read: mahagony) liquid.
Aroma of Chinese teas mostly — think Keemun chocolate note, with hints of citrusy. Probably bergamot as they say.
Taste is very mellow (I bit blame the age, to be honest), again Keemun taking most part, smooth, and hints of citruses. Again the bergamot I suppose. Backbone of malty notes.
Whoa, I haven’t expected such a great flavour for that old tea. Just be careful with steeping time I guess.
Flavors: Cacao, Citrusy, Lemon Zest, Malt
