This should probably be called something like ‘delicate Russian black beauty’
First, this tea has a 194f recommendation which made me think it would be less vibrant than other blacks that get the killer 205f. Seems I was right because this tea is just delicate overall once brewed. During the What Cha tea tasting event I hosted, this was at the top for sure. The smooth taste mixed with a light color and an aroma that needed focus to understand it… just a wonderful tea.
Where many black teas have that ‘waking me up’ taste from the boldness, this tea has a calming sweetness to it.
This is a black tea that non black tea drinkers might find very enjoyable :)
