Had a sample of this from Kittenna, merci!
It was good, but not as good as the Taiwanese Mountain Black (I know they are two totally different types of tea but my repertoire of straight teas is limited), as I found the flavor wasn’t quite as strong. It was roasty but not super roasty, there are some unique flavors within that I (of course) can’t really identify (told you i will never be able to pick food notes out of an unflavoured tea!) but I did enjoy it!
Just a bit too weak for me, I think I would have to use more leaves or steep it longer in order to get the desired flavor. I suppose that’s why it works well as the base for the Maple Pecan Oolong (which I love), it lets the delicious flavor shine through.
I probably wouldn’t order this one, though I wouldn’t mind trying it again! It may have been just a tad too delicate for me. So happy to have had some though!
