My free sample from Chicago Tea Gardens like many of you seemed to have done the same.

This smells like toasty black tea…very nice!

It seems to be a medium brown in color but I’m not quite finished with the infusion just yet.

The lil swirl balled up leaves are really trying to eek their way out into a more straight and narrow looking leaf…for the most part it looks to be successful.

That taste…

It certainly toasty. NOT smokey but toasty. YUM. There is a hint of sweet at the end and a little maltiness but not full malt!

As it cools I can pick out that it is more of a toasty nut flavor. It’s interesting and pleasing – so glad I got to try it!!! It’s very good!

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Oh I can’t wait to try mine. I always wait to try blacks when my husband is here (so maybe later this afternoon). He mostly like plain blacks and some oolongs so I share those with him. Sounds good.

I infused a bit longer than suggested but it was still really good…

Mmm, sounds tasty. I’m guessing this a black version of (the normally green) Pi Lo Chun?
