95 Tasting Notes
This tea has a pleasant malty aroma. It has a malty taste that is rich and sweet. I was really liking this tea, but it lost me with the aftertaste. Kind of like a movie with a great beginning and a bad ending (similar to any M. Night Shyamalan movie made after “The Sixth Sense”).
This tea reminds me of a golden monkey black tea but not as sweet as the one I usually drink. It has a nice blend of cocoa and caramel flavoring combined with nice bit of smokiness. The smoke flavor is subtle and not overpowering at all, which is the way I prefer it. It has a good range of flavor and is an enjoyable cup of tea.
