From Silk Road Teas

Our Congou, from Fujian Province, reflects the Chinese tendency to use a lighter touch in oxidizing. This tea was grown locally near Fuzhou using traditional farming methods. Medium-size black leaves, uniform and slender, with light mix of gold buds, creates a black tea with depth and a slightly nuanced taste. The flavor is softly sweet and the aroma clean and sweet. This tea is light on the tongue and will show some complexity with a hint of malt and, at times, fruitiness. Milk and sugar can be used with this tea.

This is a beautiful tea!!! The dry leaves are dark brown with orange-brown colored threads mixed all in and they smell like bourbon balls at holiday time.
Brewed, the wet leaves look like brown crochet thread, staying all thin and wispy.
The liquor smells fabulous, sweet and “caramely”
The flavor is smooth and sweet. So good and has that caramelized sugar flavor that I love love love. Then there is a malty finish. Yum YUM YUM!! A good black tea for me to keep on hand!!!
