Lightly toasty aroma with slight hints of fresh plum peels and a light touch of wood smoke. Sharp citrus on a base of light malt, cereal and prune; faint accents of fresh cinnamon. Light aftertaste.
Not all tea productions go to the open market. Some are reserved home for sharing with the family and neighbors. They don’t have to look good, because everyone is casual about daily look here in the village. Congou Rustic is a direct, strong character, and yet a pleasant tasting black tea suitable for enjoying straight, as how the folks like it. Or make it strong with condiments, like we do sometimes.
