From Westholme Tea Company

Style: Black

Origin: Westholme BC, Canada

Description: The Heron stands, stoic and silent, in the marshy fields below our tea garden. The elegant majesty of its presence commands the attention of those watching as it takes flight – we hold our breath as it ascends. It leaves behind a gentle wake that ripples through the marshes.

This Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe has been nine years in the making. As the tea garden matures and deepens its roots, the full flavour of our terroir emerges in the steep. Like the heron, this tea stands on its own – and we are so pleased to share the experience.

Tasting Notes: Rich notes of toasted hazelnut and hints of ground cacao combine to form a satisfying full mouth finish. A woody, almost spiced aroma mingles with the deep smell of earthy leaves. Steeps to a beautiful red-gold.

Brewing Instructions: 2.5 g per cup. Use 100°C water (full boil). Pour gently over the loose leaves. Steep for 3 minutes, or depending on your taste. The low astringency of this tea will allow you to steep longer if you wish, and we encourage re-steeping to experience different aspects of the flavour profile.

This was the other tea from Westholme that my coworker brought back for us to try. She was a huge fan of this tea, but for me it made less of an impression that the white tea. I’d describe the taste as warming, woody, a little nutty and maybe just a smidge malty? However, overall I just felt like this was less flavourful than the white tea and a tiny bit flat/muted.
