20 Tasting Notes
Very dark tea in color, taste is classic Yunnan but with some strong hints of Shu like notes….and the aftertaste is kind of like the aftertaste of a good cigar …its an odd little bagged tea but a good one!
Flavors: Malt, Oak, Tobacco
Not bad for a bagged tea…just something I got on a whim after seeing it in a store, smells good , medium level of bergamot , mild flavor , smooth black tea in the background with hardly no bitter notes . Good for when you feel like making something fast and easy and nothing involved.
Tried this after visiting Teavana last night at the local mall…It’s tart so be aware of that…and its heavy on the black currant and the hibby…but i can’t really taste much of the other berries. There’s a hint of raspberry in the scent…as it cools off the tartness mellows some, tho to be honest this tastes more like a tisane then tea..the white tea was just overwhelmed . I love Black Currant and don’t mind the Hib..so thats why I gave it an 85…the smell of the tea in the tin tho is a solid 100.
