Review of Red Horse Black Tea

8 of 105 of 55 of 587 of 100

Very enjoyable! This is my favorite tea so far from Simply Good Tea (I've only posted two reviews so far but have tried a few more).

The leaf looks a lot like the Bai Lin Gongfu I just tried from Joseph Wesley: well-formed, very wiry, curly leaves with quite a lot of golden-orange tip. Very aromatic, suggesting dried fruit.

The brewed cup smells malty, or more like whole-grain rye, with fruity undertones. The aroma hints at chocolatey tones, but it's just a suggestion. The flavor is mellow and mild, and there is little astringency.

Very enjoyable. I recommend brewing this one on the stronger side, because of its smoothness, and also that its aroma becomes very pleasant if concentrated. It easily brews two cups, but I found it was too weak to brew a third.

Very enjoyable and I think an excellent price for a tea of this quality. The batch from Joseph Wesley did seem a bit more aromatic than this one, but only a bit, and it was over twice the price!
