This lovely tea is refreshing, sweet, and yet still robust in flavour. The chrysanthemum takes an already great black tea to new depths, the two ingredients dance together to produce a rich flower and chocolate flavour that ends off with the most pleasant notes of wildflower honey. I would give this tea a higher score if it were easier to brew, I find the dragon balls are too large and are probably meant for making a whole pot of tea or gong fu brews (not really my brewing style for black tea). This is hands down one of the nicer black tea blends I’ve tried.

Upon first sip a bold and earthy flavour hit my palette, followed by some pleasant woodiness and a semi-sweet aftertaste. What I didn’t enjoy is that it has a pungent compost smell which unfortunately was present through most of the steeps. If you can get past that this is a decent aged ripe pu-erh.
