This black tea is incredibly smooth. It has a very creamy texture in your mouth and doesn’t have any “bite” to it. Someone on the Canton blog said it smelled like rust, and now I can’t help but taste a slight iron-y-ness. The flavor is of cream, malt, cocoa, and a little bit of fruit that I can’t name.

I usually like my black teas to be strong and tannic, but this one is terrific and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys smoother blacks or even to those who don’t usually drink black teas at all.

Bio

Tea means so many things to me, it is so deep and it is revealing new meaning to me all the time.

Tea is a mindfulness practice, and a doorway through which to explore different philosophies, cultures, and historical times. Tea is hospitality and a way of communion. Tea is an art, a ritual, and a tradition. Tea is a complement to the foods I eat (preferably vegan desserts) and is something I enjoy collecting and curating.

I love to swap, or even just send people samples, so if there’s anything in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message!
