Another of the teas from my swap with Azzrian.
I got home from a morning bike ride to my barre class, then some farmer’s market shopping yesterday, and kinda hit a wall. Ok, time for black tea. I though this might go well considering it was a nice warm day. Made up my cup, being careful to not steep for too long. The tropical scent was detectable in the dry leaves, but not overpowering. But after steeping, I’m afraid I couldn’t really taste too much tropical. The taste was definitely of the black base. But it was lovely! A nice soft black, absolutely no bitterness, with just a lovely, soft, very drinkable taste. I know, not very helpful, might need another cup to get more detail on the flavour notes.
So still enjoyable, just not very tropical.
