I got this tea in Argentina in September of 2011, so you can do the math that it is an old tea. It’s also a tea that once it’s gone, it’s gone.
Once again, I will say how amazed I am that a CTC leaf tea can be so smooth. Overleafed with extra long steep? Yes please. The flavor on this one is fading slightly I think, but it’s always been a mild tea. Perhaps I should bump the leaf/steep time again. Now it tastes mostly like red fruits, with a hint of jasmine and some very light citrus from the bergamot. Still delicious.
