Another gift from a friend who knows I like black teas. This has moved its way into my regular rotation, mostly because I like the flavor and because I can re-steep the leaves (western style) three times before they lose their flavor too much.
The initial flavors I have noticed are woody and creamy. The creaminess reminds me of a good-quality Keemun tea. There is also some astringency to it, but that could be because I prefer steeping for a bit longer than normal. I don’t notice any of the menthol flavors that sometimes can be found in a Ceylon tea. Overall, this is a great tea for day-to-day enjoyment!
Flavors: Astringent, Creamy, Wood
