Another rainy day… which means oolong or black tea for me! This one smells just lovely! It smells fruity, bakey, sweet, leathery… so delightful! Sipping… the scent actually translates very well to the taste! It’s sweet, fruity and a little bit bakey. There are so many layers, it’s hard to pick all of them out! Fruity, leathery… darker and more bitter the more I sip. I love the finish on the tongue — it’s sweet and begs to be sipped again! At times, this tea seems like a much lighter black tea and at others, it becomes almost a bit brisk.
I’m really enjoying this cup because it’s so unique. I don’t think I have anything like this in my collection. A great cup to have this afternoon!
