Recent Tasting Notes


From the EU TTB – Round 3

I came across this one at the bottom of the box last night. I’ve had some good experiences with Chinese black tea recently, so I’m delighted to have the chance to try another. Since I’m brewing this one at work, it has to be western style, so I used 1 tsp of leaf and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water.

The scent while brewing is lovely – malty, a hint of stone fruit. To taste, it’s even better. The beginning of the sip is sweetly malty, which then deepens into a delicious, almost yeasty, baked bread flavour. There’s a light fruity note right at the end, maybe apricot, and a smooth, almost caramelly finish.

I really enjoyed this one. It has a lot of the characteristics that I enjoy in a black tea, was flavourful and deliciously smooth to boot. The more Chinese black teas I try, the more I’m encouraged to continue trying. Long may the journey continue!
