drank Black Ruby by Shui Tea
141 tasting notes

The leaves are extremely long, twisty and adhesive so this might be better prepared by weight. The dry fragrance is sweet and dusty with a touch of anise.

Prepared, the fragrance is caramel and vegetative. The taste is full and malty. There was a brief sour “snap” at the end of the first few sips, but that subsided as the cup cooled (or my taste buds were finally awake.)

Subsequent infusions of this were pretty good for a black tea. It picked up a mellow, biscuity character.

avid reader and fitness freak – my tasting notes are brutally honest and range from raving fanaticism to snarky *please don’t take them personally*
