From an old Sips By box.
This came out suspiciously weak. I used about 2 tsp of leaf for a 12-ounce mug, which I don’t think is unreasonable? In any case, it works for other black teas. The sample is from February of last year, but it’s completely sealed and I have other, older Chinese black teas that still taste fine. Highly suspect!
The flavors I can taste are nice, I get sweet honey and hay as well as chewy grains and perhaps a bit of bread. There’s a nice light honeyed aftertaste as well.
I have enough for a second try. Reserving judgment until then.
