So, a 20-year-old old arbor tea. For €35. I bought a 50g sample of this just to try. It is actually not a bad tea to my taste. It is sweet, somewhat savory and there is a smokey sweetness that lingers. This sweetness isn’t really deep or warming, it’s more of a high, citrusy sweetness, almost acidic. This tea isn’t weak or unsubstantial, nor is it overly strong or astringent. Perhaps it’s even a nice budget raw, although I think it would get boring pretty quickly. . The leaf and liquor color are really light. I’m no expert but really can’t imagine this having been stored for 20 years.
Flavors: Astringent, Citrusy, Smoke, Sweet
