This is a very smooth, sweet black tea offering from Golden Moon. What strikes me most about this tea is the color of the brew. It is a vibrant, VIBRANT ruby red color. The thing shines.
The tea itself is very smooth and malty, with a very honey-like finish. Like it literally tastes as though there is honey in this tea. Obviously, this makes it a little sweeter than most straight black teas. The aftertaste of this one is a little sharp, though. It’s definitely better on the tongue than it is on the memory.
I could definitely see keeping this around for company, it’s just visually striking, and the flavor has a familiarity to it that lends itself well to gatherings. I may keep a tin of this around just for that. I wish I had enough of this sample to try it iced, I bet it is splendid.
