From Herald Tea

From deep in the misty Wuyi Mountains, where the first black tea is believed to have been traded, comes this exquisite tea. Wildwood is comprised of 100% unsmoked lapsang souchong, considered to be the godfather of all black tea. With its highly-uniform, twisted black leaves, this tea is a testament to the care and mastery that go into producing a golden example of authentic Wuyi black tea. Quality of land, farming, and processing come together to form a magical brew that exhibits an incredible symphony of lingering savor and rich sweetness that brings to mind a myriad of scrumptious flavors. The tea showcases a shining example of “frankness”, which is to say that it expresses its character in a most delightfully forthright manner.

I didn’t know about this company before, but I have two of their teas from past Tea Thoughts countdown boxes and figured it was time to dive in. I also didn’t know that unsmoked lapsang souchong is a thing, probably because I don’t generally drink black teas and especially not typical lapsangs because I don’t generally like the heavy smokiness. So I’m really glad that this was in the countdown box, because I never would have tried it on my own!
This tea smells absolutely amazing. It’s malty, bready, and almost chocolatey. The taste is malty, bready, and sweet, with a slightly dry mouthfeel. It goes really great with spicy Chinese food – the natural sweetness balances out the spiciness.
