Aroma: Dry leaf- chocolaty caramel
Wet leaf- Malty, almost a smokey wood
Color: Reddish gold
Taste: Dark chocolate, malty, light roasted after taste. Very smooth and rich
Notes: My first time trying a plain, loose unflavored black tea! And, my first time trying Verdant teas! I always assumed I didn’t like plain blacks since I’ve only tried cheap tea bags of it. The dry leaf aroma smelled so wonderful as well as the brewed cup. Leafs were beautiful as well. Really taste the deep chocolate/dark chocolate flavor, as it finishes with a nice light roasted flavor. I ended up adding some almond milk and agave the next time, excellent as well. Thank you Verdant for making me a black tea fan!
