Cracking open my sample of this after seeing a recommendation from Courtney. I made an order of sample sizes from TTC a while back, luckily they’re all sealed or vacuum sealed, so I’m sure they’ve held up marvelously.
Dry scent was a dried fruit explosion, some sweet and sticky but also with pops of tartness.
The steeped aroma is quite different, all cinnamon and creamed honey. Yummy. The honey and cinnamon are also present in the flavor, thank goodness. They meld perfectly with the soft bread note to make me think of thick homemade wheat bread toast slathered with creamed honey and sprinkled with cinnamon. There’s also a lovely sticky dried fruit note, so perhaps a touch of fig jam as well.
Yummy, sweet, fruity, bready, cinnamony tea. Breakfast in a mug! ;)
Starting with a conservative rating until I’ve had some more Taiwanese blacks to compare this to!
