Yeah, they just call it black tea. The packaging is mostly in Chinese, so I can’t read it. Eventually I’ll get a friend to translate it and see if they can tell me the actual name of the tea. It tastes like a breakfast blend.

Regardless of what it is, I love this tea. It doesn’t get bitter no matter how long you steep it or how much leaf you’ve used — trust me, I’ve pushed it pretty far. I originally bought it for making milk tea because the lady at the shop told me it was really strong, but I’ve found it really mellow and smooth. Not sure exactly how to describe the aroma, but the taste is woody and sweet and a bit like caramel. This tea is super cheap, too, less than $5 for more than 4oz.

A friend once asked me, if I could have anything in the world, what would I want? I immediately answered, “Superpowers, specifically superspeed like the Flash.” He said that didn’t count because it wasn’t real, so my second choice was a cupboard full of every flavor of tea in existence. He promptly told me that that was a waste of a wish and said he would ask for the world’s biggest yacht.

But the more I think about it, the more I’m sure that I made the better choice. Slowly saving up money for higher quality teas is helping to convince me. Off I go to taste as many teas as I possibly can (and maybe dream about superpowers along the way).
