It’s been ages since my last update! This tea struck me with its fruity acidity. Compared to other flavoured or herbal teas it’s not really acidic, but by the standard of a plain black tea it definitely is. It’s a bit odd to me but it’s not all that unpleasant. The tea itself was not very strong and so the acidity easily stood out.

Green Japanese teas are praised but it’s quite rare to read some word about a black Japanese tea, thanks for that Devilish
