I had this yesterday, or was it the day before?

It was fast becoming my go-to tea of choice when at the Path of Tea shop and ordering a pot, so the last time I was in I opted to buy some loose to bring home.

I am slowly but surely falling in love with all these Chinese black teas that have more or less no astringency. It makes me wonder why anyone drinks Assam. I mean, sure, it’s good with ice and lemon, but it certainly isn’t premium tea most of the time.

Something about this tea and others like it always makes me think of premium black strap rum.
