This was my first mug of tea for the day, steeped Western style. I think this sample is from VariaTEA although that might have originated with Sil – so thank you to whomever was involved in sharing it!
It’s not a particularly exciting black tea, but it’s really smooth and solid. Definitely thicker bodied with coating sweet notes of dark chocolate/cocoa powder, freshly baked bread, malt, and just a tiny bit of like a “buckwheat honey” drizzled within those more warming patisserie flavours. A very good “daily drinker” type candidate.
