I tried this one about a week ago and loved it. I must have been in a hurry because I didn’t log it. I only infused it for about 4 minutes but the water temp was quite hot – at least 200 degrees. This review, today, will be based on 10 minutes and 100 degrees C – as suggested by the company. I don’t think I have ever infused a black tea for 10 minutes on purpose. So I thought this was interesting and I really hope it works.
AFTER A FEW MORE MINUTES OF WAITING…
Yup! This is GOOD!
It’s of medium strength for a black tea base. It’s amazing that this didn’t get bitter! LOVE that! While reading the package THIS TEA won the Great Taste GOLD 2012 Award! I can see why! It’s an original! It’s unique! This tea is selected and imported from Taiwan! The flavor isn’t INTENSE but it still has a NICE flavor on the tongue. It’s one of those to sit, sip, and ponder!
It’s slightly crusty and quite malty. It’s not a think malt but a smoother type malt. There are dark chocolate-like notes and honey or mead flavors popping thru. It’s really a joy to drink this tea!
