This is a very tasty black tea. It got some malty flavor too it but not a lot. I like that. It’s got notes of chocolate or cocoa, or what people call those notes. They never quite taste like chocolate to me but I know what is meant by it. It’s also got something of a sweet note. Not sure what to tell you as to how sweet because I added a little sugar. But it definitely has a natural sweet note to it just not sure how strong. I have gotten some good teas from Streetshop88 over the past couple of years but I wonder about the claim on this one. Is it really organic, wild tree, and ancient tree, who knows. It is, however pretty good. It’s much less malty than the Yunnan teas I’ve gotten recently from Yunnan Sourcing. The leaves look like quality leaves, but that is just my impression. At $13.98 for 100g of this tea the price was certainly right. This is definitely a tea I will endeavor to finish rather than see sit there.
I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 3 minutes.
