Sipdown! (37 | 110)
I haven’t been drinking many straight teas lately for some reason… I should really rectify that, as a yummy plain black tea is one of my favorite ways to start the day.
This one is very light but tasty. It’s sweet, bready, malty but also has an interesting cooked green bean note that I didn’t expect from a Taiwanese black tea. There are little hints of the usual honey and cinnamon, and a touch of dried apricot. A very light floral note pokes its little head out near the end of the sip.
The body is extremely light though, which honestly isn’t my favorite for this type of tea. I find with a smoother black tea like this, I always want a thicker, richer body to go along with it. Whereas with teas that are a bit more assertive or brisk, I prefer a lighter body.
Anyway, it’s yummy! Just a bit too light for me. I definitely prefer their Yuchi Wild Mountain black tea.
