From The Persimmon Tree Tea Company

This flavorful blend of bright, brisk Nilgiri loose leaf tea and smooth rich Yunnan golden buds makes the perfect pick-me-up.
Great on its own or with milk and sugar.

Thanks so much Kasumi no Chajin for the envelope of teas! This was one of them! The dry leaves smelled surprisingly sweet to me! After a three minute steep, this one was BRISK. Wow. Pretty astringent but I like them that way sometimes. I did love the flavor behind the astringency.. a bit malty. The steep color was very dark. The second steep had just as much flavor. Pretty good!

[By the way, if you see multiple tasting notes from me, posted right after the other, I just post them all at once. The first tea I post right before the other was usually the tea I drank in the morning. The second would be from later at night.]

It’s black. It’s classic. Nuff said! But as usual my humans have a lot more to say. Blah blah blah…oh, and some really cool photos! http://is.gd/P6qAmy

very subtle smell, like a mild keemun smell, dark chocolaty smell.

liquor smells more earthy/dull than the dry leaf.

has an earthy/dark flavor pretty subtle, not as bold as some other black teas. but has some complexity? that comes through, a very interesting tea and the first one ive liked in a while.(enough to drink daily)

im a little conflicted about the earthiness of the tea but overall i like the tea. as a note on persimmon tree itself, i find their tea descriptions pretty accurate at least for the few black/white teas ive tried.
