Oh, wow! I went all day without tea because we went on a road trip and I was plannig to drink all the double-doubles from Timmies, and then I only ended up with one.
And it’s 10pm and this is my first cup of the day and I’m not at all upset I had to wait so long because I AM appreciating the heck out of this right now. It’s dark and rich, and maybe just a little oaky. I detect spice and chocolate notes and more. It has a slightly thicker mouthfeel that gives me ALL THE TASTES.
It’s delicious Thanks Sil!(219)
mmmm… this was another sample from YYZ and one off of my wishlist, so thank you for that! I really liked this one! of course the downside being that work caught up with me and i don’t have a very good memory of this one from eaaaarly this morning, beyond the fact that i drank it up and had to make a second resteep while on a call with people lol My kettle is noisy haha. I am a fan! it was smooth and delicious and slightly chocolately while also having a slight fruity hint to it in the background. thanks YYZ!
This is a nice contrast to the roasted sweet potato flavoured Panyong, I’ve been drinking all day. As this one is all spice and chocolate and cherries, when I get it right.
This tea is a little rugged in appearance and texture unlike some of the beautiful tippy version I have seen of this type. I don’t know if this is the style of preparation or has to do with the youth of the plants, this tea is from 1-2 years old( whether this is age, or years in production I’m not sure). However when you get it right the flavour of this tea is wonderful. Unlike most of my blacks I find that this tea is best made with boiling or near boiling water and allowed to steep for 4-5 minutes. Sometimes this tea has some grainy notes but today it released this wonderful flavour which reminds me of kirsch and dark chocolate sprinkled with cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg, with a bit of caramel underneath. The tea has a thick, rugged body and a touch of astringency but it’s worth it for that flavour. This tea doesn’t re-steep forever like some of the teas I’ve had lately, but I should get one or two more cups out of it.
I bought this from aliexpress as an affordable introduction to this type of tea. The store owner seems to have expanded into taps but he has tried to source all of his teas directly from the producers. His shop can be found here:
