I can’t believe I haven’t left a note for this yet. This was a gift from the delightful derk. Many thanks, derk!
I concur with gmathis and would have to say that this tea really does taste like a copper kettle in liquid form. It is sweet, thin bodied, not bitter, not astringent, a little woody, but I didn’t get malty as Martin did. Perhaps it was the way I steeped.
It reminds me a bit of an autumnal Darjeeling and I notice it has stems in like a Taiwanese tea.
I agree with gmathis that I don’t think this tea would be a candidate for milk, but sweet tea? I think it will be. I have a carafe chilling now.
