|"This whole leaf black tea has some lovely pieces of whole leaf and a mellow flavor for a black tea. "|
I brewed it with slightly cooler water than I would for a black because it was my first taste of this tea. The color and flavor seemed to come up very quickly. And the floral fragrance continued to characterize the experience. But the actual taste of the liquor was pleasantly citrus. There was no dark heaviness. It was crisp, clean and clear. I haven't tried it iced yet but feel like it would be very refreshing.
Sorting through the wet leaf revealed quite a few whole leaves along with the bits of stem and some good sized broken leaf. There were very few fine particles and no dust. I did note some very green leaf bits and realize that this added quite a bit to the overall refreshing experience of the tea.
A search of the website was a bit disappointing in that this tea was not listed among their loose leaf teas and didn't come up under a search. So, what I'm hoping is that I've just had the privilege of a preview of coming attractions.
