Review of Laos Wild Phongsali (No. 585)

9 of 105 of 54 of 592 of 100
SuperbExcellentGood Value

Half-litre pot at home, made from curly sticks of dried leaves, varying in length from 1 to 1.5 inch. Pours neatly clear dark copper brown (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of black tea with mild notes of fruit and hints of herbs. Mild, bitterish flavour of black tea, with round fruity hints and herbal touches. Rather smooth palate, the astringent notes of black tea coming quite late. Asmooth, fine, delicate drink, with natural non-agressive sweetness. Perfect. I have never tasted this variety of tea before, and I must say I am definitely impressed by what I am drinking right now. An expensive treat (€8.30 per 100 g) but definitely worth it.
