This was a lovely and smooth black tea, but I’ve had better.
I had to look up Mengsong to see if this was a Chinese or Taiwanese black, as it strangely had elements of both, flavor wise. It’s smooth and caramely, a bit like A&P from W2T. That’s the element that made me think of Taiwan.
There’s a bit of malt and floral, which is what makes it Chinese tasting.
I’ve had deeper and more complex from both countries, but that doesn’t make this any less pleasant! Thank you for the sample, tea friend!
