390 Tasting Notes
This tea is most enjoyable – pleasant aroma with a sweet and nutty taste. No astringency at all. I made the purchase because I’ve never had a Nepalese tea and I was curious but I really like this one! It’s in line with many of the Black Yunnans I typically enjoy. I’ll definitely be buying more.
Update: 2nd steeping reveals flavors that have become much more spicy. The flavor shift is a bit surprising but both cups were very enjoyable.
I am most definitely a black tea person – for me, nothing tastes better. If I could sit and drink black tea all day, I would be very happy. That said, I do have a real appreciation for all tea types (with a few notable exceptions – earl grey and jasmine to be specific). So I am really enjoying this tea today. It is a perfect afternoon sipping tea – creamy, buttery, fruity and good for resteeping. In addition I always enjoy the fun factor of watching the little Dragonwell Soldiers standing upright in the glass vessel.
