Another sample from Sil. She spoiled me!
On first opening the little bag of this, I was a bit worried becuase I could smell an earthy aroma, which I associate with a pu-erh. I then looked up the description of this tea, and was greatly confused. Black tea scented with orange? That can’t be what I have here.
While brewing I could still smell the earthy aroma, I got from the dry tea. But after brewing and once it started to cool, there was that orange scent! It was a black base with a light orange scent. The taste is absolutely awesome. Very refreshing. I almost want to try putting orange slices into my black tea to see if I get the same taste.
Thanks Sil for this tea. I quite enjoyed it.
