YES. Wholeheartedly yes.
This is one of my favourite mild black teas, mild as opposed to the strong assertive black teas in Mighty Leaf fruited teas. It is pretty mellow morning or afternoon tea. I find that this and Buttered Rum by David’s also are in the same craving range for me. Both are my big favourites from David’s selection and I always have both in my cupboard.
This is now my second or third big purchase of this tea.
The tea brews up dark amber. The dry and wet scents are lovely: grounded light caramel. The taste is mellow grounded caramel, light light caramel, with a wee hint of sea salt. It’s a mild tea—I enjoy it black, through two quick steepings. I have had it in store as a latte, but found it not as satisfying as I’d like. The flavour and depth was not strong enough in all that milk for me.
One thing I really like about this tea and David’s Buttered Rum is that the black tea base is relatively mild. Any idea of what tea they are using here as the base? Anyway, it is just the thing when you want a gentle flavoured black tea, as opposed to a slap you upside the head on both sides black tea, which has its moments too, of course.
I like this combination of flavours a lot. I would like to discover a tea that has a bit more true rich quasi-burnt caramel flavour going on, without tasting false, of course. So, if someone has any ideas, please let me know.
