I was craving black tea this morning but there was no time to make it, then middle daughter offered to make a pot for me while she was making hers.
I started out drinking this hot and I am still amazed at what a complex black tea it is. Dark, a bit of molasses flavor, sweet, cocoa notes…and then, I iced it with a little sugar. We were having lunch outside on this beautiful Easter Sunday and POW! Suddenly I get flowers at the end of the sip! I even looked around to see if enough roses were open to have influenced me, but only a few blooms were present and I was upwind from them. I sipped again paying clolse attention and there it was….flowers. There is also a maltiness with a bit of spice that I have found in really excellent Assams, though this is a Wuyi black. Delicious. I will be sorry to see this tin come to an end.
