I decided to try a black tea from the Vahdam samples today, choosing this one.
I’ve not had a lot of loose leaf black tea before – most of the time when I’ve had a black tea, it’s been bagged and most of the time when I’ve had loose leaf tea it’s been a green or herbal tea. With a bag I often just left it in for a second or two before disposing of the bag, which meant a rather weak taste.
This tea tastes fine, it has a malty flavour, it has a bit of an aftertaste which lingers for a few seconds after a sip. It’s not one of my favourites so far, but it is drinkable. I think the next time I drink this, I’ll steep it for three rather than four minutes.
