I have been looking for a tea with rich caramel flavor built upon the solid base of a good black tea and this one is a definite contender. This is a tea to savor and enjoy.

Small dark dry leaves, tightly rolled with a sweetly earthy smell, produce a clear reddish-brown tea liquor. A nice base of Assam complimented by the rich sweetness of a butterscotch/caramel flavor. The aroma as the tea steeps is very enticing. I went for a resteep and, as expected, the sweet accent flavor diminished a bit but the base itself can stand up to a resteep. The aroma of the resteep was almost as strong as that from the original brew.

If you enjoy a caramel black tea, this one is worthy of your consideration. 1 solid teaspoon in 8oz of 210 degree water with a 4m steep and a 5m resteep worked well for me.
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I drink mostly puer and sometimes what we as Westerners think of as black tea.

I no longer assign numerical ratings to teas because our enjoyment of tea is very subjective. Reactions to a particular tea vary from person to person and within the same person across different tasting sessions.

My tea notes are simply comments reflecting my impression at that specific point in time. They are helpful to me and if they happen to be useful to someone else that is good.

For me, tea is magical with its ability to transform by bringing one back to center and inspiring both peace and contentment.
Reformed coffee drinker. Switched to tea as part of my goal to work on living a healthier, more balanced life — haven’t looked back since.
