Bought this in the bulk section at Whole Foods and can’t find much info about it online. Not on the SR website, although there is a note that they have many “private estate” teas of varying types not on their site. It is sold for $99 a pound at Whole Foods and I mistakenly poured myself a much larger than a 1-2 cup worth bag that came out to $5, which isn’t the end of the world, but definately wasn’t what I was intending. I must have gotten it mixed up with the more economical breakfast tea.
This looked to be a black tea, but the taste is much lighter than that. It is almost oolong like with it’s floral scent and light color. It has a sweetness to it on the sip and finish with hints of honey passing through. There might be some apricot mingling in the sip. The honey is so light and perfect on the finish. It makes me think that this is what TWG was clumsily going for with their overly artificial honey tea. It looses a little bit of it’s magic as it cools, but it is still good. I’m slowly realizing why the price tag was so high. This has got to be an oolong, no way is it a black tea. I’ll have to try lower temp next time with oolong in mind.
