Yeah, they just call it black tea. The packaging is mostly in Chinese, so I can’t read it. Eventually I’ll get a friend to translate it and see if they can tell me the actual name of the tea. It tastes like a breakfast blend.

Regardless of what it is, I love this tea. It doesn’t get bitter no matter how long you steep it or how much leaf you’ve used — trust me, I’ve pushed it pretty far. I originally bought it for making milk tea because the lady at the shop told me it was really strong, but I’ve found it really mellow and smooth. Not sure exactly how to describe the aroma, but the taste is woody and sweet and a bit like caramel. This tea is super cheap, too, less than $5 for more than 4oz.
