I ordered this for 2 reasons. ONE…because I was restocking my new-to-me Black Teas and mainly because it’s a black tea from Mozambique. I LOVE trying teas from different regions and wanted more from Mozambique.
After reading Momo (if that’s your REAL name…sorry inside joke) and MOMO’s notes I decided to infuse twice the amount at around 1 minute instead of the time she stated and didn’t care for the nutmeg-punch.
Dry – I liked the black tea base aroma in this tea. After infusing it didn’t really smell much. It DOES brew VERY dark brown – near coffee color, really.
The fannings are REALLY fine.
The flavor is pretty standard, really. It’s not bad but it’s not overly memorable, either. It’s good to have on hand for guests who aren’t really into picking out specific traits of teas, I guess.
After a few moments I can pick up on a nutmeg flavor as well as a questionable and mysterious fruity hint at something…plum, perhaps, not completely sure, tho.
Overall…I did finish the cup and it’s alright. Not my favorite, tho! But doable!
