This was sent to me by the most generous Scribbles. Thank you so much for introducing me to Tao Tea Leaf. I’ve liked pretty much everything of theirs that I’ve tried.
This one is harder for me. I like it, but it’s a bit odd. It’s a bit like a Lapsang Souchong, but different. It is smokey, but you can still taste the black base under the smoke. This is a really bold black tea, and while the smoke is not overpowering, it is still very present. I just find it odd that they have found a way to put this much smoke on the leaves and still allow the base to come through.
Having said all that, I do like it, but it’s still a little too smokey for me.
Thanks so much Scribbles for sending some of this my way.

This is one of my favorite types of black tea so I have sampled it from three different farms now and find it to be quite satisfying. This one here is more astringent than others that I’ve had. While the flavor is there, which is nice, the bitterness is somethi by that I wish wasnt thefe

Did you do western or gongfu?

Liquid Proust

Western on all black teas. It’s just how I do it.bare certain black teas to be gongfu?

boychik

I rarely do western on Chinese reds. Almost never . You won’t notice any bitterness or astringency if you Gongfu them. Indian/Ceylon is western only

Liquid Proust

Hmmm… I shall try and see what happens tomorrow. Maybe my black tea game will completely change! Thanks for the advice
