I don’t think I’ve come across a black tea quite like this before. For starters, it’s appearance reminds me more of an oolong. The leaves are black/brown in colour, but they’ve been rolled into oolong-like pellets, complete with leaf stem! The scent also puts me in mind of a dark roasted oolong – it’s rich and kind of earthy, with a metallic tang. I guess these characteristics could describe a black tea too, but I personally associate them a lot more with darker oolongs, as I do the leaf preparation. Still – we shall see! I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water. The liquor is a medium golden-brown, so I made no additions.

Backlog:

The appearance of the dry leaf reminds me a lot of an Oolong pellet. It’s a different color, of course, most of the ‘pelleted’ Oolongs are greener in color and these are chocolate-y brown, but they are still tightly wound into pellets. They have a warm, nutty aroma that’s slightly sweet and slightly earthy.

A very rewarding flavor. It is reminiscent of a Nilgiri tea. Somewhere between a Nilgiri black and an Oriental Beauty Oolong. In my full-length review of this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/10/14/organic-black-tea-from-arum-tea/ I mention that I get the texture of the Oolong while I taste a smooth, malty flavor of the Nilgiri.

A really lovely Black. I enjoyed it.

Hmm…this one is interesting. It’s definitely woody. But not the normal woody. It’s like a softer wood flavor. It’s not actually as bad as the usual wood flavor I get.
But still…Wood. Not a fan. xD
Thanks for the sample though, LiberTEAS!
