This black tea was not interesting the first time I tried it (I rated 57), so I decided to try a more humid storage for this one. Unlike my other black tea cakes, I store it with shou. I am not sure to what extent that has had an effect, but there is sure an improvement, especially in the aroma (thus also giving a much more interesting aftertaste) and the body. The taste is smooth and balanced with a biting, expansive aftertaste. I find it quite floral, spicy, malty and creamy with a honey note, but not really sweet.
