From What-Cha

A sweet black tea with a rich texture and lingering raisin taste.

Produced from a big leaf Yunnan varietal which has been cultivated in Guangdong for the past 30 years.

Tasting Notes:
- Sweet with a thick texture
- Long lingering taste of raisin

Origin: Shaoguan, Guangdong Province, China

Brewing Advice:
- Heat water to roughly 95°C/207°F
- Use 1-2 teaspoons per cup/small teapot
- Brew for 3-4 minutes
- Always remove the leaves from the water once the tea has brewed
- Re-use the leaves multiple times and increase steeping time with each subsequent infusion
- Best without milk
We always recommend experimenting with any new tea, to find the parameters which suit you best

Whew, spent a lot of time in kitchen today (and there’s more to come), so it’s nice to sit down and relax with a hot mug of tea. I chose this one to try because it was the first black tea I saw in my What-Cha sample pile. And I’m happy that it was, because now that I think about it, a smooth Chinese black sounds particularly good. The leaves are fairly large and quite twisty, and a dark, warm chocolate brown in color. Dry scent is amazingly sweet with hay and molasses tones.

The steeped tea also smells quite sweet with molasses, honey, and raisin aromas. Mm, wow. This tea has such rich and deep flavor with a dark and comforting sweetness. There’s a bit of malt, but the main flavors I can taste are sweet and rich molasses, a touch of tobacco, and some syrupy, sweet dried fruits such as fig and date. Also some raisin perhaps. Dark and delicious! I would recommend this one to any fruity black tea lover.
