|"The first sip contained light malty undertones with a crisp and fresh black tea quality."|
To prepare my cup, I used one very generous teaspoon in boiling water with a two-minute steep. The cup was strong and robust, turning a beautiful and rich amber color. The first sip contained light malty undertones with a crisp and fresh black tea quality. The cup finished with a drying touch, and lingered on the back of my tongue. Suggestions of honey were also noticeable throughout the cup. Overall, the cup was slightly astringent on the finish but not overly so.
I found this tea to be a wonderful breakfast drink, although some may not find it quite strong enough. It would however, take both milk and sweetener well. While it doesn’t have the same ‘bite’ that other breakfast teas offer, it certainly gets the job done in a softer and more reflective way. I would recommend this tea for those who enjoy savoring their morning cup without being jolted awake.
