[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.
