This is a staple in my tea bar. The tin contains curled black and yellow tea leaves. They’re not quite pearls but more like tiny nuggets. (Snails per the merchant) The fragrance they impart is what I would describe as “aqueous”- like clean, fresh water.
When brewed, the leaves unfurl to partial and full leaves and produce a bourbon* colored tea.
This is one of the smoothest, most mild black teas I’ve tasted. It’s mildly vegetative with no bitterness and is quite sweet for an unflavored black tea.
*Steep responsibly and remember- friends don’t let friends drink bad tea.
