Eight months ago I had this tea and thought it tasted old and musty. Aging it further has not improved it.
It kind of reminds me of the Bergamot Rose Laoshan Black, in that it almost doesn’t taste like anything, although this one does have a mustiness that is quite unpleasant. I was going to cold brew it to see if that improved it, but I’m really not sure. It’s that mustiness that’s almost worrisome, although it has certainly been in a dry, climate-controlled environment its entire life. Maybe I will decide after I try the BRLB that I cold brewed last night and have for lunch today.
