Hi everyone (waves). Week long hiatus because of my thesis. Thesis done (hopefully). Deadline on Friday. “I like to live dangerously!”
Anyway, I decided to try a new shop for me and I just decided to give a several new teas. I was craving buying new teas, but not from subsciption. Genuine, pure teas…
And as I wanted some pure black, I decided to order this one. Not only to mention that typo in the name… my pouch is saying 2nd Flush 2015. Not happy to see it much, but it was cheap tea. Truly, very cheap tea. That 15 grams sample was cheaper than a beer here. And beer is cheap.
Anyway, took two teaspoons and my 300 ml mug.
It’s described as very malty tea with raisins, honey and licorice flavour, but honestly… (it’s because age?) it was rather like a malty and tobacco. With strong tannic aftertaste. Raisins, in my opinion are different, and honey… no way, sadly.
Overall, it was quite mediocre tea. Far from Mokalbari Assam (but as well completely different area). And that biiter aftertaste isn’t a thing to look forward as well. Well, at least it was cheap and just a small sample. Not every tea is a winning tea.
Flavors: Malt, Tannic, Tobacco
