Oh my, this tea….
It starts with the long, partially golden, unbroken leaves. After brewing, the tea has a very nice, dark brown chestnut-like colour. It smells sweet, with a hint of honey. The scent is very interesting, as it does not reflect the taste of the tea 1 on 1.
The tea has a very recognisable flavour profile. It’s sweet and malty at the same time. The maltyness is followed by a wooden tone. It also has a fruity, grape-like flavour at the end of the sip. Despite steeping it for a normal to long period, it has no bitterness whatsoever. One of my favorite China black teas for daily use. Strongly reccommended!
