This is a nice very affordable everyday tea.
The dry tea is mix of grey black and reddish brown leaves with raisony, biscuity odour. Tea brews to a nice reddish brown with an aroma of citrus and spice.
It has a smooth and pleasant taste and clean mouth feel. with a shorter steep, it has fruity, sightly spicy top notes, with base notes referencing artichoke and a little bit of malt. The aroma of tea is deeper than flavour though this may be the result of what I ate before hand. With a longer steep, the flavour intensifies, with the base notes becoming more present and the top notes remaining light and fruity. Makes a nice bright breakfast tea drunk without any additions. This is a type of tea i’d be more inclined to add lemon to than milk. Resteeps well, though it becomes more astringent.
