A very warm and cozy tea, like a fuzzy blanket or a hug in a cup. The subtle sweetness in the finish complements the roasted and malty quality of the tea. A touch of nuttiness rounds out the well-bodied flavor. Even though I have never had a tea from Laos, I find this tea in a way very familiar, as if I have already enjoyed it before. 9/10, a wonderfully enjoyable tea for colder days.
