Oh boo!! I had a bad tea tasting day. The other tea I had this morning was not great either, and it was my standard toasty Triple Leaf Oolong… previously tasty, now less so!
so I won’t rate it now.
This reminded me very much of a basic Asian black tea. Almost like the Teavana tea I bought awhile back.
Except… well it tasted somewhat soft. Like there was something missing. Picture the “flavour” made into a pie, and then someone removing a third of the ingredients. It’s not dampened or bad tasting, but simply missing.
Anyhow, I didn’t taste anything spicy at all so I suspect that’s the piece I need to find!
Doc app on Wednesday so hopefully I will get a lead on how to fix this. It’s driving me batty!
That said, I did find this tea to be mild, but rather sweet as well. Almost overpowering in that aspect
Yunnan is a province in China that has been growing tea for 1700 years. The `yun` in Yunnan means `cloud`, which is fitting because most of the teas are grown at elevations of 3,000-7,000 feet. This Black Tea has a number of golden tips, which gives it a mild aromatic and slightly spicy flavour. All Black Tea lovers will want to try this traditional tea.
