Another sample from Tao Leaf tea. Again, not my favourite but still a good cup of tea. It’s almost time to add all of dexter’s teas to my cupboard and hope that i’ve managed to drink enough today to offset that lol. This is a malty sort of black, though there’s an earthiness here that makes it different from some of the other malty black’s that i’ve had. To be honest though, after the lapsang, this one comes through as a bit on the boring side lol. I need to remember not to drink straight normal blacks after smokey ones :)

Sipdown #45.
I’m sorry to report that I really blew it with this tea :(
I got sidetracked while it was steeping, forgot to set my timer, & it must have steeped for 10 minutes. This is especially disappointing because Sil bought this for me so I could sample it (she’s awesome that way). So I drank a few sips of it, & although it was bitter & kind of sharp, I know I would have enjoyed it if I hadn’t screwed up. It has that awesome Fujian character that I love about Jin Jun Mei & others. I can’t really describe it, but I love it.

Picked this up a while ago when I was in Toronto. The Tao Tea Leaf store is quite nice, they carry a lot of beautiful tea ware. There are a lot of places to buy tea in Toronto.. I’m sure there are a lot of stores I don’t even know about, but this particular place caught my eye because they mainly sell premium teas (not mainly just flavoured ones).

Now onto my tasting note:

I’ve short steeped this tea a few times now, and in general it reminds me of a few other black teas with similar profiles (Zhao Bai Jian, Laoshan Black Tea). Earthy, floral, malty, hint of chocolate and sweetness. Sophisticated and easy on the palate. I really enjoy how the floral notes never get too bold, there is just a nice hint of it. And out of the other teas with similar profiles, I prefer this one because of that mild floral aroma.
