A brilliant selection, with velvety complexity which is well worth the price. The golden oxidized tea buds are beautiful to look at. Brewed, golden-orange in color, fading to sunglow nearing the edges. Intense aromas of malt and wood with notes of orange zest and almond. Very silky and creamy with a dynamic palate that ranges from sweet potato and raisins to honey, coco and almonds finishing very sweet and long with balanced flint-like mineral acidity and very slight astringency. The honey notes increased as the tea cools, which added to the progressive experience. One of the best teas I have had in a while.
