|"remarkably smooth and very delicious; the tea’s winning trait is its character of freshness."|
The leaves of this tea are various shades of brown, spanning from pale straw to dark chestnut. The leaves have a pleasant aroma that hints at floral and fruity notes. There is a faint muscatel scent here too, making this tea vaguely comparable to a Darjeeling tea. The tea brews to a rich amber-brown color and a fruity-floral aroma proudly wafts from the mug. The flavor is complex, with the leading notes being floral, straw, and raisin-like flavors. A more subtle citrus note finishes off the brew. I realize that this description may not sound entirely enticing, but the flavors offered by this tea are remarkably smooth and very delicious. The tea’s winning trait is its character of freshness. No, this is not a stale or flat tea, but instead one that is fresh and full of flavor.
I enjoyed multiple cups of this tea throughout the day, and I can see myself purchasing this without hesitation. I would recommend this to anyone looking for their next go-to black tea.
