Yet another tea I bought for my secret pumpkin. Of course, I had to buy myself some as well.
This tastes quite like a black tea to me, but more like a fine black tea one would drink out of a fancy teapot (as I did, so maybe I’ve biased myself). It tastes a bit of porcelain, medium strength tannins, and something that’s…fruity? No specific fruit, but there is this sweet note that tastes of cocoa powder and something sweet and fruity. I’m not sure what this is actually, but I like it.
It holds up well to being steeped a few times and has flavour while not being bitter, so overall a really interesting tea. The brews a strong yellow colour (as opposed to the expected amber colour), which I found very interesting. The little rolled leaves unfurl and my 2 tsp of dry leaf took over my entire strainer. This is quite a neat tea.
