Well after the Earl Grey failure this morning I knew I had to have something I enjoyed. I’ve tasted had this tea before but hadn’t joined Steepster yet. So without further ado…

The leaves are really pretty, the gold and black contrast nicely. They’re small, fuzzy wiry leaves with a smell that does remind me a little of a hay, but that doesn’t come across once brewed. The liquor is a deep amber that I wasn’t expecting.

This is a pretty smooth black tea, a little astringent. No bitterness at all. and I get the “meaty” aftertaste… I think. It may come from the thicker mouthfeel. A very tasty, savory tea overall.
