[Autumn 2017 harvest]

The tea has a mild and delicate yet exciting taste. There is a lot going on, even thought malt definitely is the most present in the taste. Chocolate, citrus and spicy notes are very noticeable too though. Generally it is a very sweet affair. In later infusions, the sweetness is more reminiscent of pastries and sweet potatoes.

The aftertaste is protracted and oscillating between sweet and spicy, very enjoyable.

I love the mouthfeel, it is very thick for a black tea. Given that it’s pure bud tea, it also lasts a surprisingly large number of infusions.

Flavors: Astringent, Chocolate, Citrus, Honey, Malt, Pastries, Spicy, Sweet, Sweet Potatoes

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
