The first thing I noticed about this black tea is the aroma of the leaves after the first steeping, very strongly of honey. However, within that honey aroma, another is hidden. At first I was not able to identify it, although it perplexed me. I realized it is of cinnamon when I started to drink the liquor. There is a slight metallic aftertaste and astringency, however I did not notice this until I reached the bottom of the cup. The second steeping reveals a subtle and pleasant fungal taste. This tea is wonderfully smooth and balanced, although it’s not quite affordable for me.

Hey, I’m Izzy. I’m an 18 year old student living in Minneapolis Minnesota. I like fresh and fruity oolongs as well as deep earthy ripe pu’erhs. I’ve been drinking tea (obsessively) for 3 years now. Most of my tea comes from TeaSource, but I order some direct from China from time to time. I prefer Chinese and Taiwanese tea, tea philosophy, and preparation styles.
