I’ve had this one twice now and it’s the first chance I have been able to jot down some tasting notes :)

First and most noticeably is the strength of the long, wiry leaves! They are wonderful!

The aroma is of medium strength black tea that is bready/crusty-esque.

The flavor is MARV…very high quality tea. It’s malty and smooth with highlights of that bread-like flavor. The more I drink this the more I LOVE it! I’m going to send the rest to LiberTeas, tho! She’ll get a kick out of it!

Oh wow! This is so lovely! Just as the description suggests, I can really taste a crisp minty note. There is no mint in this tea, and it is not a flavored tea, this is just a natural characteristic of this tea. Amazing. It is sweet, no bitterness, with a rich, smooth, malty quality. A very comforting tea – the kind you want to drink hot and with which you want to curl up under a cozy blanket in front of a fireplace. Which is kind of nice because we have been experiencing a rather chilly spring day today.

I really like this one… I hope that T-Oolong gets it in stock again.
