From Distinctly Tea

Extraordinarily sweet, chocolate-like fragrance with similarities to the very expensive top grades of Keemun.

The first steep was straight black, and once again I failed to appreciate a black tea all on its own. They describe it as “extraordinarily sweet” but by the gods I could only think “extraordinarily burnt.” This tea tastes like burnt things. If you like that kind of thing, for sure check this out straight-up, but burnt is not my idea of tasty.
Second steep was with my requisite milk and sugar for black teas, and VAST improvement. The only problem with thinking black teas are delicious with milk and sugar is the possibility that I just like the taste of milk and sugar. But, it has been argued that the flavour of the tea must be in there somewhere, so kudos to it for grounding my sweet tooth?
The “extraordinarily sweet” was true this time, it was much like other black teas I’ve had (English breakfast comes to mind) but actually without the burnt-flavour undertones! Just pure sweetness. It was ridiculously delicious. So sweet I might have to have to delegate it to a dessert tea. Yum!!
