I have been looking for a tea with rich caramel flavor built upon the solid base of a good black tea and this one is a definite contender. This is a tea to savor and enjoy.
Small dark dry leaves, tightly rolled with a sweetly earthy smell, produce a clear reddish-brown tea liquor. A nice base of Assam complimented by the rich sweetness of a butterscotch/caramel flavor. The aroma as the tea steeps is very enticing. I went for a resteep and, as expected, the sweet accent flavor diminished a bit but the base itself can stand up to a resteep. The aroma of the resteep was almost as strong as that from the original brew.If you enjoy a caramel black tea, this one is worthy of your consideration. 1 solid teaspoon in 8oz of 210 degree water with a 4m steep and a 5m resteep worked well for me.
