The throw away tea infuser is nice for when I’ve forgotten my hardware at home after taking it home for cleaning. Basically I bought this as a back up for when forgetfulness happens so i can leave the tin at work and still drink some tea.
This is definitely a black tea, smells strong especially when drinking it after the Bai-Lan Kung-Fu from Shang Tea that I typed about earlier today. This is robust and strong when brewed in a small mug. The aroma starts with some wood and something slight subtle darkly sweet… maybe hints of brown sugar? It is only a hint, but I am getting something there.
Taste is a nice combination of typical black tea with almost a coffee note right after swallowing. My mouth feels dry afterwards as well which I definitely notice with some teas. It is a solid, but not superior black tea in my opinion.
All in all a fine back-up bagged tea for when you forget your hardware at home.
