Beautiful long unbroken leaf, it looks good. Fragrant whiffs of dried plum, it smells good. Deep bronze hued brew, it feels good. Flavors of cocoa, plum, graham cracker, malt and prune, it tastes good. Ah but there’s a rub.
I have really enjoyed all the teas from this company. I like that they offer, a wide range of teas and consider there descriptors most honest and helpful when selecting. This tea though as good as I have stated above just does its mojo with the first 2-3 steeps. After that I get a gentle sourness that I have only tasted before in Darjeelings. I have brewed this many a times and no matter that sour note comes through. Will it distract me from enjoying the first few steeps, heck no?
