From Teabox

An excellent breakfast tea with just the amount of caffeine you need to kick start a long day.
Picked from the Mouling estate in North-East India, this tea is very well-balanced in terms of taste; the mildly bitter malty notes are evened out by the sweet, fruity ones. But what makes this tea special is its very smooth and velvety texture. The body and taste of this tea, together with its long and smooth finish will give you the perfect pick-me-up for any morning.

I wasn’t expecting much from this tea, particularly with a description that starts with “slightly bitter”, but actually, I’m really loving it. I drank it once yesterday, attempted to drink it a second time (but it picked up travel mug taste and wasn’t so great), and I’m starting off with it again this morning.

The dry leaf is small, dark curls with a smattering of golden tips. It has a faintly malty smell, but nothing too distinctive.

Steeped, the leaf smells rich and malty. The tea soup is a lovely, clear mahogany, and smells of rich fruits and malt.

The flavour is excellent. If there’s any bitterness it only a hint, and there’s notes of malt, strawberries, raspberries and stone fruits. This has a medium body and just a touch of astringency, which lends a pleasant depth. A sweet potato note develops on the finish, with a whisper of cinnamon.

I’m not entirely sure why this tea stands out to me, but it does. It’s a really great morning cup, and I could see myself drinking it often. I’m going to be through my sample pretty quick and I think I will reorder.

Usually teas that have the bitter descriptor are also not my favorites, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised a few times.

Analina, I’m with you on this one….I ADORE it. Review to come later, but it’s one of the few teas that I ordered 100g of from Teabox and I’ve tasted almost all their teas. I get no bitter from it at all…just a lovely light fruity tea. Hooray for unexpected surprises!
