From DAVIDsTEA

Take our word for it – you’re going to fall for this tea. It’s really something special. Unlike most black teas, these leaves are lightly steamed during processing – a step usually reserved for Japanese green teas like Sencha or Gyokuro. The result is so delicious, we can’t figure out why we don’t see it more often. It’s aromatic and rich yet surprisingly refreshing, with hints of ripe fruit and dark honey. Go ahead and get acquainted…we think it’s going to be love.

Just received this tea in the mail today, and had to make a cup immediately!

As I poured the water into the pot, I knew it was going to be different, just from the smell! I used more tea then was recommended on the bag as I’ve been having problems getting a decent cup of tea (ie one that doesn’t taste like colored water…). I used 6 tsp for 3ish cups, and let it steep for 8 minutes.

The smell was quite strong, and the color was a deep amber. I put a bit of milk in it (I never drink tea without milk!), and took my first sip. It was surprisingly good! A very different taste than regular tea, but good! It is strong, I think I’ll use a little less or steep it for not quite as long next time, but I was pleasantly surprised, especially after the problems I’ve been having!

The description from DavidsTea is quite accurate, I think, I can definitely taste the fruit and honey notes!

All in all, a great tea, though it has a very distinct flavour and I think it would be one of those flavours you’d either love or hate!
