This is a decent tea in search, I think, of an identity. I think it will make a good basic black for iced tea. As a morning brew, it does the trick adequately but is not audacious or bold. It’s like the shy kid at school who hangs back a bit so it won’t get bullied. Black Frost most certainly has got some fresh-mown grass mentality, It’s a Nilgiri but does not speak to me of high elevations—more of gently rolling slopes. It’s most certainly a black tea which smells and tastes as if it’s been travelling with a group of green teas on the same bus.
The aftertaste is naturally sweet in a gentle, mellow way. Overall, it’s not a spectacular tea that boldly asserts itself but I think it might be an overall “good chum” of a tea—a regular pal who can be trusted and respected. I’ll drink more and possibly revise the review.
