My tea of the morning.
It was pleasant. Not as strong as I’d like… but the honey note was definitely there, underneath the black, and in the aftertaste.
Very little astringency, compared to what I expected… and slightly malty.
Overall, a surprisingly delicate tea considering it’s of the most oxidized variety. It’s good quality, very smooth and refined.
I won’t be buying any for the house though, it just doesn’t have that “oomph” factor I so enjoy in my blacks.
