Chocolaty, Decadent, Deceivingly Sinful Laoshan Black has all the aspect of chocolate with none of the guilt of sagging waistlines save for the the guilt of running out of this stuff! A tea wonderfully composed of orange pekoe and buds that opens up with an aroma of cacao beans when brewed or luscious freshly baked brownies in dry leaf form. Brewing this finely textured curled leaves has the sensation of drinking hot chocolate in its purest form or eating baking chocolate too add a velvety touch at the end of the palate. The most memorable trait is its signature vegetal character akin that is most akin to traditional Chinese greens that gives this Black Tea, a reminder of the versatility of tea and nature. Enjoy this tea immensely dear tea lovers and do drink on!

Backlogging into another taste note this time around together with the cacao beans and intense milk chocolate like flavor that seems to caress ones palate is then followed by a youthful bean flavor much liken to green beans. Loving every sip of this tea!

I’m a tea lover and a traveler. I believe in delving into cultures and cuisines. In so doing, I have found tea to be the most exciting and adventurous beverage in the world that has played a role in history and in the lives of many. Now that’s a shrub isn’t it!
Note: I may be a purist at times where some teas needs to be enjoyed naturally, yet I do enjoy many other teas that find its way into my palate!

Favorite Teas: Yunnan teas, the staple Assam and some Darjeeling, love Japanese greens, and “indie” teas either home grown or unfamiliar regions i.e. Turkey, Georgia, love Tisanes, Oolongs, some white teas, and my favorite staple: Chai teas.
