By the time the husband was ready for tea, I had finished two steeps of Caravan, so I decided to partake in the tea-ness. Though we’d try this one again today if only for the novelty of the little CTC leaves which I find quirky and fun.
It’s not an overly-nuanced tea. There’s clean cardboard, earthy and a little almost Darjeeling brightness. Getting a little bake-y hint, too and a hint of astringency once I breathe in after a sip. Nothing too exciting and closer to flat than a well-balanced flavor but it’s a good standard tea, I think. Probably won’t get it again but I find myself intrigued by CTC leaf so I’m sure I’ll be getting more of that style of tea.
