This is from a sample Christina sent to me. It didn’t look like the type of tea I would choose but I gave it a try this morning.
This tea surprised me. Long dark spindly leaves. The dry leaves had a slight fruity , raisin smell to them. Brewed 2 min at 95C. Pulled out the infuser and what? Green leaves from black tea? Yep, the leaves when infused turned green.
This is not a bold black but it has loads of flavour. Very fruity with a bit of malt. There a slight buttery base in it too. It’s a little like the moonlight teas. It’s just so mild and tasty. So much fruity flavour!
I don’t often reach for blacks. I have to be in the mood for them but this one is one of those blacks that seems to be a bit of a crossover from the lighter teas. I really love this one! I see it’s from Capital Teas and I’ve never ordered from them before. That means Capital Teas may be on my order lists in the future (once I’ve sipped down my teas to a reasonable level.)
Thanks Christina for this one!
