I’ve had the opportunity to try quite a few different teas from Cameron – both the black tea varieties and the Oolong varieties – and it would be difficult to tell you which I prefer. They’ve all been quite lovely.
The beautiful leaves are whole and have been rolled lengthwise to create a lovely, wiry shape when dry. They slowly unfurl to release their flavor. It’s warm and robust and sweet with notes of cacao. Caramel and molasses. Subtle tones of leather and earth. There is a very pleasing texture that is thick and buttery and smooth, but it doesn’t taste buttery like an Oolong or green tea would. It just feels it.
