This has a unique flavor profile to it.

I picked up on some of the honey wheat they talk about in the description. The flavor notes are bright, light (when compared to a dark and malty tea,) and not flustered by oversteeping it seems.

A bready malt is within the body, nothing overpowering but reminiscent of nibbling on sweet crust. There is just a hint of astringency but again it all ends in a mellow flavor.
At the second steeping I can pick up more of the sweet dried fruit flavor.

Honestly for the reasonable price I scored this brick, it’s a solid tea with diverse flavor and a great body. I was surprised by the results!
There are notes containing the phrase Puerh in one of the description. Although this tea does from from the Yunnan province per the packaging I cannot confirm if it has “true Puerh” characteristics in the body.

"Rail"Road tea… that was what made me most curious at first :D (I am railbuff)
And it looks like a tasty tea too!

@Martin, I would say give it a try! This box was scored for less than $10USD on eBay with an “expiration date” for 2023. Great value for 48 cups of tea when steeped twice.

If nothing else the packaging is cool. There are other variations with different types of tea bricks but this is the plain black tea version and it stands on its own in flavour profile.

I enjoy many tasty things in life. Getting back into tea as I am trying to wean off of coffee for regular consumption and maintain a more healthy lifestyle.

Also enjoyed are all of the historical implications of tea culture, and teas of the world.
Take a moment to meditate with a cup in hand, and our world will seem clearer when the last sip leaves your cup!

My rating system is in honor of K.S.

90-100 Stellar, to be displayed proudly if shared with guests. Or just a tea that hits its mark well.
80-90 I enjoy this tea a lot, would purchase and drink it. Fine if it lives in the pantry
70-80 Above Average, would drink it and probably still buy if the mood struck me.
50-70 Average, I would still drink it when available.
0-50 I don’t care for this tea, and have no desire to care for it.
