The last thing I should be doing this late at night is drinking black tea, but I’ve been saving this to try when I had a chance to relax and enjoy it, and this is the first bit of time I’ve had.

It’s a striking color, first off — it came out a dark, rich red. I usually don’t care about the color of my tea, but it’s gorgeous. It smells great, too.

There’s a lot of maltyness, which is exactly what I was hoping for. But it doesn’t stop there — there is a nice astringency to this tea, but it has a little bit of a sweetness to it, too. It ends up nice and complex and really delicious.

This is really everything I want in tea. If it wasn’t this late, I’d brew up another pot, but I guess it’s time to switch to something herbal if I want to sleep tonight. (Plus it would probably be better at breakfast!)

I love tea! I still don’t know very much about it, though; I know what I like and what I don’t, and that’s about it.

Aside from tea (and food), I enjoy crafty stuff, writing, reading and playing with my cats.

About my ratings: I need to go through and redo them, because really I just sort of use that slider as a ranking system and the numbers for a lot of the teas I’ve done notes for don’t accurately reflect how I actually feel about them. :/
