This tea is rich and thick and oddly reminds me of coffee. Not the particularly great stuff but the instant aircraft stuff that is slightly stale and requires cream. I know not a raving endorsement, but I actually did enjoy this tea. Maybe it comes from fond memories of drinking way to much of that stuff.

I appreciated the richness of this tea with its mix of smoke, cocoa, tobacco/nicotiana, dates and honey tones. It had a nice robust flavour and a creamy texture. Thanks for sharing this Dexter3657, I wouldn’t mind keeping some of this in my cupboard but only in small amounts.

I used 4 balls in 200ml of water.

Sorry that this isn’t a hit with you – I really like it, but then I really like all black pearl teas…. instant aircraft coffee :(( LOL

I did actually like it, but not enough to get a ton of it. Thanks for letting me try it though. It saved me purchasing a lot of it. I guess I prefer Yunnan’s with less tabaccoish notes. I liked the smokey element to it though.
