Why have I waited so long to write about this? Or ahem, even try it. My bag was buried in a moving box, which was tucked away in storage, for literally two years, then I finally got it back when I moved into this apartment. Yet it has still been sitting in my cupboard because my tea consumption slowed down tremendously over the past year.
So here I am. This batch was packed in 2014 and has a shelf life of three years, yet, upon opening it, it still seems fine.
First cup here is so bready. Like wholesome, hearty, freshly baked rye bread or something. Not white bread. Minimal astringency and a semi-thick mouthfeel.
