Backlogging – I won this tea in a weekly trivia contest from Shanti Tea. I really like it. It’s quite mellow for a black tea. It’s not bitter or astringent. The liquor is a light greenish-brown. It’s a good black tea. I am sad that I don’t get any of the strawberry flavor that they mention in the description. Overall though, it’s tasty. I would have given it a higher rating if I could have tasted strawberry in it, or if the description hadn’t mentioned strawberry at all.
A golden-green liquor with a semisweet strawberry flavor.
High marks go to this artisanal Nilgiri from Dunsandle. The multi-colored, variegated leaves, enlivened with silver tips, produce a golden-green liquor with good mouth feel and the subtle, semi-sweet flavor of unripe strawberries.
