Wow! the first black I’ve seriously enjoyed in a long time! (shhh, don’t tell Assam k?)
Well, that isn’t the whole truth. At first, I wasn’t so sure. The hot cup was a bit too bold for my liking. But then as I got through it, the boldness evened out and the malty stepped up into a caramel like sweet and creamy goodness. I’mpressed!!! -ha, oh dear the grammar cadets will be after me for that one… but I’m stickin with it :P
Hmmm, I think this might be one to purchase, eventually. After I get through the rest of the Golden Mint’s lineup. I’m never around when they are open… so when I am it’s a special treat! Funny though, it’s only $2.25 per cup(almost 30c cheaper than Davids!) and yet most of their blends are $7.50/50g, except their black’s which are $6!! It all seems so backwards to me. Expensive loose, but cheaper by the cup, and cheaper black tea than rooibos?!
Bah, the tea was good… what more do ya need?
