This is review number 1,
I brewed this with a lot of leaf and a fairly short steep as I usually do when trying a new red tea.
I was surprised how much like a darjeeling this tasted! Muscatel notes, not much sweetness, a little astringent, a little bitter (balanced bitterness, not unpleasant).
A little like an oak barrel, a bit of ash.
Overall underwhelming for me, however my partner likes it.
Flavors: Ash, Astringent, Muscatel, Oak
