Another tea I always sort of thought was smoky and generally avoided (unless it was used as a base tea somewhere along the way and not identified). The leaves are the cutest mini curls!
Hmm. It’s not my favourite. It has hints of maltiness, but with a coppery-ness that I don’t prefer. The Lapsang Souchong had this too, but less in my mind, because I remember not being overly bothered by it. This tea comes off more savoury. Yes, savoury is the key word here. As I sip this cuppa, the coppery flavour falls a bit more to the background and more savoury-ness comes forward, but nothing in particular. It kind of feels like I’m drinking a veg broth. A high quality veg broth haha!
