First off, this is a mighty hard tea to scoop due to the big twisty leaves, but there are worse problems to have.

There is a definite sweetness that comes out of this tea, above and beyond the sugar I added (a touch of milk also). I’m not sure I taste the caramel notes from the description but there is something there, teasing me, that I can’t quite identify. This is a very simple and pleasant tea, with just bare hints of astringency that I may just be imagining and no bitterness at all.

I quite like this, but it is nothing to shout from the rooftops. Also note that it is only available in 25g size for order.

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
