A bit of a different tea from a many high mountain blacks, this tea has a touch of a on it, giving the tea a warmth and depth that is lacking from many of the softer high elevation black teas. "Toasted cherry pie" was one person's thoughts on this tea and the ripe, red fruit notes meld with the warming of the slight roast.
