I see that the last time I drank this I didn’t really write a tasting note because I was distracted. Well, I guess I better remedy that!
This is quite a lovely tea. It is kind of one of those black teas that reminds me of a honeyed dan cong oolong, but better because it’s a black tea (not the biggest fan of dan congs here). Anyway, this is definitely on the fruitier side for a black tea, and I do get a sense of stone fruit (peach, apricot) and a hint of lychee. There is almost a floral quality as well. I’m usually not the biggest fan of fruity (unflavored) black teas for some reason, but this one I quite enjoy. I think I like it best when it is toward the hot side versus once it really cools down… as it gets just warm it starts reminding me of a darjeeling (fruity florals, I guess). Quite tasty overall.
