Visually, this tea was very beautiful, consisting of small, wiry black leaves with bright golden tips. The scent was slightly smoky, with a faint and welcoming sweetness. To prepare my cup I used one level teaspoon in boiling water with a three-minute steep. The tea brewed up to a deep rust color with a clear smoky scent.
This tea presented a very robust cup, yet remained smooth. A pleasant fruitiness, sweet and plum-like, lingered well after each sip. A clear yet light smokiness was also present and combined with the sweet, fruity flavors to create a deep and intoxicating drink. This tea offers a little bit of everything. It is smooth, yet sturdy enough to work as a morning brew. It drinks amazingly easy while offering up a wide range of complex flavors. I was very impressed with this tea and I’m looking forward to checking out my additional samples from Canton Tea Co.
