From TeaGschwendner

And here is another surprise from the other side of the world! The experts of Oolong are now presenting a black tea tasting enchantingly like honey, caramel and a bit of malt. Smooth and mellow, this cup surprises with strength of expression normally only known in Indonesia or Vietnam.

I couldn’t find my Malty Black this morning … then I realized I forgot to buy more last time I visited Ronnefeldt. Since I didn’t feel like falling back on Assam or Yunnan today, Zealong Black it is.
… I still need to get a new tea-timer(5 minutes this time, was supposed to be 3), but then again, 2 teaspoons may have been a bit little and I guess it evened out, since the colour was a golden orange, and the taste was sweet as promised – honey, not caramel, but still definitely sweet. (A less sweet tea might be better suited as a breakfast tea, but I was already awake and my breakfast was a bit odd anyway …)

A very surprising tea, possibly a bit pricy, but worth a try for sure. The dry leaves are rich in notes of dark cocoa and hints of raspberries. Steeped, the tea opens up to aromas of cooked sweet potatoes, mild grain malt, tobacco and hints of blackberries. A very light color, more reminiscent of an Oolong than a black tea, crystal clear and a shade slightly darker than a harvest gold fills the cup.
The flavor is boldly sweet with a clear hit of honey, moving into light malty notes and absolutely no astringency at all. Almost frighteningly smooth on the finish after getting all of its bold flavors in the mid-palate.
A great tea that could easily be served with dessert at a formal tea dinner, or would be fine at any gathering of tea aficionados or just a nice treat alone for reflection. As stated earlier, the price is a little high for what it offers in terms of my own subjective enjoyments, but well worth trying and sharing with friends.
