Thank you Sil for sharing this with me. I have friends visiting for a week from New York and so this morning when a friend asked for plain tea, I have her a choice of a number of straight blacks. This is the one she settled on and tbh this cup is much better than the last which means it is a great way to say goodbye. There is a hint of dryness but once I get past that there is rich caramel and notes of earthy sweet potato. A very nice cuppa to start the morning.
