I'm stuck in an office all day that isn't always conducive to gong fu style brewing. I needed a tea that could stand up well to Western style brewing. Lately, I've grown more fond of black teas, and this has become one of my top 3 go-to black teas. A worthwhile investment for a hand-crafted everyday drinker!
I'm hesitant to write a review as it was my favorite tea from my first order and by the time I came to buy more it was gone.. hopefully the next batch will be bigger :)
When I first tried this tea, I found it sweeter than I expected from the description. The tea has a pleasant, earthy depth and engaging complexity that comes out both in gongfu and Western style brewing. It is very grounding.
An incredible black tea with a natural sugar cane sweetness that holds up well to long steep times. This tea is a delight no matter how you steep it. It is sooooo GOOD!
