Review: Canton Tea Co. Wild Mountain Black

Posted by Sophie
This tea manages to be both light-bodied and sprightly but decadently flavourful at the same time. It's definitely worth a splurge!

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"This is a tea for grown ups, with strong, somewhat astringent flavours reminiscent of grapefruit, seaweed and whiskey. It’s a great candidate to have with a meal, as it has no trouble holding its own when paired with flavourful foods."

This leaf makes for a subtle yet sophisticated cup. Clean mineral notes are combined with a hint of creamy broth, springtime blooms and stone fruit. It’s a pleasant brew for those who can afford the price tag.
