This tea was not on steepster website yet and is not available anymore on canton tea (if my search was correct). It was part of the canton tea club but for a short while on sale for all costumers. Now to the tea…

I was waiting to open this package because its a vary special tea in my opinion, because its pretty rare. The sugar element in this tea made me purchase it, it made me curious!

The dry leafs are pretty large and tippy but thats a sign the quality is good, there were almost no broken leafs in this ziplock bag. For my first steep i’m using a teaspoon of leaf and using the recommended brew time of 2min with 95°c water. The color turns out a dark brown a bit like a ceylon or a light brewed assam. On my very first sip (the tea is still to hot) i notice a light malty taste and of no surprise i can tasted a little bit extra sweetness from the sugar, its not overwhelming but in my opinion enhancing the taste a bit. When its cooled a bit more its less malty then i expected but its still very strong in taste and even a little bit caramel like.

Its a tea i could possible drink on a everyday base but its far to unique to be actually doing this. A nice surprise and i will be trying to get some more off these canton tea club tea’s…
