This is wonderfully complex in a mysterious way. Very likely I lack the ability to distinguish flavors, but I kept coming up with… paper. Paper in an old library that has picked up many qualities, leather binding, tobacco, spices and, of course, the wood from which it was made.
It is an elegant, aristocratic medium bodied tea.
I would recommend this in the tin, as it comes shipped in a padded envelope that could get squished. Mine fared well, but I will get my teas from them in a tin after this. It’s worth it.
