I got this tea bag in “big bags section”, newest tasting notes are 7 years old…. so it is that old?
I don’t know how to you make formatting here guys, but I will do my best even without it.
“Watte means Estate, Uda means High” — that’s what they claim on back side of tea bags.
Another statements: “Full-bodied, rounded & refreshing. In the style of a Pinot Noir!”
And although it is apparently only dust in the bag (unfortunately, not a loose leaf version), it was exactly what they wrote on the bag. It was full-bodied, round and refreshing.
Yes, it was very mild in taste, quite tannic and malty, but with cocoa notes somehow. And even those flavour are considered quite rough – it was rather mellow. To be honest, it reminded me bit Yellow Label from Lipton but without that artificial extract from tea leaves. But this tea don’t deserve comparing with Lipton.
It was fresh even ages from produce. Foil bags indeed make even old tea tasty… it doesn’t rot or just weak at all.
Indeed tasty tea, full-bodied. I just really enjoyed this morning cup.
Flavors: Chocolate, Malt, Tannic
