A black tea cake made by Xiaguan? I couldn’t resist giving it a try.
Comes in a nice box, cool wrapper, good looking leaves.
In the cup it’s a good quality, strong, pretty “standard” example of a Yunnan black tea with malt, cocoa, and sweet potato notes with a hint of Xiaguan smokiness. Nothing super special, but it’s a solid, affordable daily drinker black, especially for those who like a bold brew in the morning.
Flavors: Cocoa, Malt, Smoke, Sweet Potatoes
