Black teas like this are great if you like them a bit more savoury and value depth of flavour and full body.
When dry, it smells leathery and woody with sweet undertones. During the session, there is a mixture of more standard black tea aromas and floral notes. I can smell malt, chocolate, but also forest floor, chrysanthemum, and lily-of-the-valley.
The liquor has a thick texture and pungent taste. There are flavours of butter, acorn, milk, and moss. At some times, it possesses a sour/bitter mixture like coffee, at others, the sweet honey finish is pronounced. In the aftertaste, additional notes of fresh wood, celery, vanilla, and caramel appear.
