2 Tasting Notes
Unfurled young leaves are covered with fine white down; the hair increases the surface area and allows the tea bush to capture moisture from the atmosphere more effectively. The brilliant appearance is complemented by a deep amber colour of the infusion and a complex aroma profile. You can distinguish the spicy notes of cocoa, the sweet fragrance of honey, and a light woody aroma of damp pinewood. To the mouth, the tea is surprisingly smooth and soft, slightly sweet and mildly astringent.
Flavors: Cocoa, Honey, Pine
The shape of the dried tips is similar to pine needles, something you don’t see in other black teas. It requires a special craftsmanship to keep this natural shape of the leaves during processing. The liquor has bright red colour, although in direct sunlight it looks almost amber. The tea emits a delightful scent that evokes the sweet aroma of prunes, toasted nuts, and spices.
