Here’s Hoping Teabox – Round Six – Tea #37
I expected this to be strong and DARK. But it is actually quite mild. I had one dark tea before and it was much stronger than this. It’s unique anyway. There is less charcoal flavor than a roasted oolong. I don’t notice any smokiness mentioned in the description either. I think this one might be TOO light for me though. Quite a bright, fresh flavor actually with a light copper brew. Anyone in the teabox, don’t be afraid of this one! I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
