Another tea arriving from Canada thanks to Jillian .
A not so very black leaf escapes from the lovely tiny gold package, it is curly , fragrant and it really suggests the very best.
I respect strictly Aura Teas statements in terms of temperature, but I choose to brew this tea Western way for 5 minutes.
The leaf really reveals its darkness when wet . It unfolds quite well but the second infusion will be necessary to fully unfold it apparently.
The infusion is of a beautiful brown amber . A strong smell of honey and fruit comes from the infusion . I’m in heaven . I can already see the best in terms of taste .
This tea is absolutely delicious ,a lot of honey , strong fruit : apricots, peaches , almost candied fruit. The texture is light bodied, it slightly envelops the palate, it’s fresh.
He has also a long finish . This tea is eminently done for me, totally my type. Jillian thank you , you could not make me happier than this type of tea .
You can see pics of my session of this tea in my new red ceramic teapot here : http://thevangeliste.wordpress.com/2014/12/22/formosa-natural-wuhe-honey-black-tea-aura-teas/
