Woah, so much golden tips! The dry leaf is covered in that wonderful orange fairy dust, and smells strongly of malt, sweet potato, molasses and raisin.
Steeped, there’s a rich, slightly boozy note that comes out. On the palate, it’s sweet and delicious, with cocoa, sweet potato, molasses. No bitterness and only the faintest trace of astringency toward the bottom of the cup – quite smooth. Taste-wise this is somewhere between an Assam and a Yunnan. I’m not sure what I expect from Himalayan teas, but this took me by surprise a bit, in the best way possible.
So very tasty.
