The tea was from White2Tea’s Monthly Club.
Right off the bat, I noticed that this tea had a smell of caramel and a straight taste of honey. I also noticed tastes of zest that followed the honey, and a cooling aftertaste that reminded me of mint. After steeping 4 there was a punch of bitterness, but it didn’t last for about 3 steeping.
After around the 5th steeping, I got a nice smoothness that was direct proof of excellent stored tea. It had a fermented taste that really helped this tea along. In the later steepings and even on my last steeping, the tea got incredibly smooth and it reminded me of butter for how thick and smooth it was. It was a very pleasant surprise and it made me want to drink it again.
Overall, I would buy this tea again and plan of drinking it in any further tea steeping.. The process of aging really did help this tea because if it was any younger, I probably wouldn’t be a fan of it.
