Had this one today after work as a bit of a “wind down” and low key sloppy session; sprawled out in bed and trying to awkwardly read, pour, and not tip over the kettle. It all worked out in the end, though.
This tea is STUNNING – really, all golden bud black teas are, but I’m also a sucker for a good curly or twisted leaf and that (if the name didn’t give it away) is exactly what this is. It tastes pretty damn good too – sweet and full bodied profile of malt, leather, red fruit, prune, honey, and candied yams! Four steeps; not a tea with a lot of longevity, but nice while it’s still going.
Pulled a bunch of black teas to drink through over the upcoming weekend – definitely in a hong mood!
