Brewed leaves (infusion)
Colours: Mainly brown with touches of green
Scents: Woody, planty, with almond (sweet almond), combined with warmer cooked vegetable

Liquor
Colour: Amber colour with coppery glintsTexture: Astringent right from the start, developing throughout the palate, giving this tea both a fullness and a long finishFlavour: A delicate bitterness that complements the lingering effect of the astringency
Aromas: Almond and sweet vanilla notes, planty (stem, sap, raw vegetable)
Aromatic profile and length in the mouth: A tea that develops as it lingers, well sustained by astringency, vanilla and few planty notes

Our verdict: This special lot from Goomtee comes from China classic plants which usually produce teas with sweet almondy qualities. The woody bouquet makes it a highly sought after pre autumn flush

This is a very sweet and relaxing tea, with strong almondy and vanilla aromas.

The taste is lightly bitter, with a stronger almond flavor coming through, followed eventually by the familiar earthy flavors.

This is a great simple tea for gradual appreciation, I can see myself using this in a blueberry tea mix.
