SuperbGoodOutstanding

Aroma toasty and caramely, like the crust of a pastry. This tea is so reminiscent of pastry that if I close my eyes, I almost picture there being a baked good, rather than a cup of tea, in front of me.

Dark, rich, but with a pleasingly smooth flavor. Finish leaves a surprisingly lightness on the palate, and a faint peppery quality. The finish is suggestive of rice.

This tea would be outstanding for people who prefer very smooth, yet complex black teas. From my perspective, one of the best black teas I've tried yet.
