I purchased this tea during a visit to Chinatown in Boston, MA. I had not been there in a long while and I was happy to visit this store that I used to frequent at least once a week when much younger as I was able to visit the city daily. I worked in the city and getting around to different parts of it was easier.

The water having boiled, I let cool a bit; I take the tea bag and tear it open and pouring its content in my cup. I add in the boiled water and stirring the mixture until the granules have all dissolved. What I am left with is a frothy drink that is a dark reddish color (amber/malt in taste & flavoring).

Tea’s aroma is very sweet with an earthy tone; it smells of herbs and when I sip of the tea it is creamy, smooth and sweetly cup of herbal tea.

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 1 minute

This tea is part of a series of tea that I purchased while visiting Chinatown in Boston the other day. I had not been there in the longest while. Anyhow, I ended up purchasing several of their teas and forgot to buy some Oolong teas. I will have to plan another visit.

For now I have teas like this one to enjoy. This tea comes individually pack sachet and I take one and empty its content into my cup and add in the boiled water and the granules dissolve at one. I stir it just a bit more and I have a lovely froth in my cup; kind of like beer foam since the tea’s color is a dark brown-sugary-malt brew. When I sip of this tea it is very sweet and warm. I want to say it sort of taste like ginger tea or ginseng to be more exact.

This is another wonderful tea for me to keep in the cupboard and I hope to one day feel the teas many health benefits. For now, to simply enjoy this tea is enough.
