This is a simple but tasty black tea with a weakish aroma. I picked it up at the Toronto Tea Festival earlier this year. It has a good balanced astringency and bitterness. As for the taste, I get notes of toffee, roasted grains and a minty/cooling finish. The aftertaste is quite expansive and spicy.

After the session, I noticed the leaves still have a slight green hue to them. This is not a fully oxidized black tea, which is interesting to see.

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and I started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth only in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
