|"This is interesting yet basic enough I could drink it consistently throughout the week and at any time during the day."|
The leaves are the blend of brown black, and light green typical to a quality black estate tea. I poured 6 ounces of boiling water over a rounded teaspoon of the leaf and left it for three minutes, leaving myself with a cup that smells of citrus and flowers, an appealing scent that creates anticipation for the upcoming cup.
The flavour of this tea is mild yet complex, demonstrating nutty, floral, and citrus characteristics. I made a second steep the same way as the first, and the result was pleasing: a cup very similar to the first but less tangy and smoother. By the third steep, the leaves had all but given up, so I will stick with two for the rest of my sample.
The whole cup through I thought about the fact that this tea is knows as the "Champagne of Teas" and about how that phrase makes absolute sense, at least with this leaf. This is interesting yet basic enough I could drink it consistently throughout the week and at any time during the day.
