Absolutely perfect with milk and sugar on this cold, dreary, wet, depressing March day. Adore.

“Best with sugar. It's a very light tasting tea, but I definitely find it needs something to amplify the taste. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a very mellow black tea.” Read full tasting note
A beautiful second-flush from the traditional garden of Makaibari. This Black Tea has an aromatic, nutty cup.

so apparently this was a 2nd grade tea, where teaopia normally sells 3rd or ungraded…
I could most definitely tell that it was higher quality, maybe even some tips in there. Overall, the tea was good, great even, but not what I wanted. That fresh, first flush aroma/flavour was popping out at me and I was hoping for more of a malty tea (as always). Also, there wasn’t much complexity here. I get the nutty part, but it simply wasn’t enough.
Oh well, this is the second last pure black tea of theirs I have to try! apparently the other one is a first flush so that should be interesting.
Oh and I added milk (I know, bad bad tea drinker I am!)
