This tea has dark color and a very soft aroma. The taste is very smooth, almost sweet, with just the slightest hint of smoke. Each sip starts off slightly toasty but finishes slightly sweet. I taste something that reminds me of caramel. It is not a brisk taste, not very dry at all. There is a very interesting aftertaste, almost a blooming sweetness when the air hits your tongue. It reminds me of the tastes and aromas of autumn. This is a very interesting tea with enough complexity to occupy your palate on its own without milk or sugar. I find this tea to be very thought provoking; each sip almost forces me to stop and pay very close attention to the flavor’s every nuance. With an understated yet full body and wide range of tastes layered quite smoothly together, this tea is a quiet storm of taste sensations.

I am a writer, musician, and aspiring tea aficionado. I have been enjoying tea and reading about tea for a little over a decade now. I am particularly interested in the role of tea in contemplative spirituality. Currently I am sampling my way through a variety of teas just to keep my palate fresh and knowledgeable. I do prefer certain teas, but I keep my mind open to new possibilities and enjoy finding fresh, new tea flavors to add to my list of favorites. I am hoping my participation here will help me gain new knowledge and new friends who share a passion for tea.
