The tea leaves are full, uniform, and black with an earthy herbaceous aroma of wood and grass. In the cup the tea is a honey amber hue and has the same malty aroma with wood and a touch of mushrooms. The taste is smooth, balanced, with a savory feel on the tongue, slightly salty, pleasingly astringent, with a slight sweetness. The finish on the palate is smooth and malty. Cost: $0.32 per six ounce cup, sourced in part from Yunnan.

Flavors: Mushrooms, Wood

Black tea enthusiast since my first cup prepared wonderfully in London some years ago. Hasn’t been a day without tea since.
