This tea is a really nice blend between the sweet and savoury. It’s scent is blend between bright fruit and light smoke and once brewed it releases a perfume of smoke,rich, sweet plum, sweet corn/ pea note and a hint of spice.
I brewed this tea four times (45, 55, 70, 100s).
The dry leaf are dark olive to khaki tightly twisted wiry inch long leaves that produce a golden yellow brew.
The tea is smooth. The first notes are savoury, with light smoke, salted butter, a roasted vegetable note (sweet green pea mixed with a slight bitter spinach), over honeyed plum, pepper and a hint of nutmeg. The aftertaste is sweet plum intensifying under a light spinach note. The tea has a rich creamy texture and maintains a consistent flavour over ateeps with only the light smoke dissipating while the rest of the tea sweetens.
The tea offers a really nice value. It has really nice fruity aspects, a thick texture and a pleasant savoury note. Another really nice tea from Capital Tea Ltd! Once again thanks for the sample.
