I know it’s an afternoon tea, but today I’m drinking it with breakfast.
I really like this tea – it surprised me by being far better than I expected. It just refuses to brew too dark or strong, no matter what. The aroma is quite bright, slightly citrusy but still a strong black tea. Tannins and malt make an appearance too.
I’m drinking it from a mug today, but really, this is a fancy teacup kind of tea in my mind.
The flavour is light, smooth and slightly citrusy but without bitterness. I remarked in my initial blog review that it lacks complexity. While it still does, I think I can appreciate it more now that I’ve been drinking it for several months. The simplicity is the charm of it.
This is a good tea to have with a slice of lemon.

Also, there’s a Steepster note on this tea from years ago by LaFleurBleue who bought it directly from the plantation in the Cameron Highlands. When covid is over (eventually) I’d like to visit there too.
