Paired this with homemade snickerdoodles (I’m on a baking kick these days).
The flavor really does come out more once it has cooled – slightly malty, typical black tea smell and taste, light astringency on the swallow. The tea has a nice texture to it, too – I guess medium bodied would be a good descriptor, as it’s not thin but not too thick or chewy either.
It’s a very plain tea to me – I can’t pick out any of the fruity notes that the description states are there. I don’t mind, though; I love unflavored blacks. I figure the more I drink them the more nuances I’ll eventually be able to pick out. At least, I hope. :)
