223 tasting notes

The leaves are beautiful with black and gold interspersed. The tea itself is black as coffee but smells like resin and what I have come to identify as the elusive malty fragrance and something else. It tastes marvelous with notes of caramel, cocoa, malt, and sweet tea. It is what I need this morning before my run.

Nice! I have a 3oz tin of this, which I love to open and stick my nose into. I’m avoiding black teas—trying to avoid black teas—while I’m pregnant, and this one will probably be the first I’ll go for after the baby comes! Happy to see such a nice review for it!

It is a wonderful tea and I imagine it would be good as a celebratory post birth tea. In fact, I suspect you may need the stern dose of caffeine to get through your days with a small baby.

I just ordered some of this! Wheee!

And yay for the forthcoming baby! Congratulations! I have a friend whose husband had sushi waiting for her after the birth.

Mine is a nice copper color… how does yours turn out black?

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
