Commercial Description

Rich and malty, our tea reminds distinctly of Assam. It has a sweet, almost cocoa-ish background that reminds of a Fujian black. It is full-bodied, with notes that hint at caramel, smoke, tasty nut flavors, and an earthy quality.

The aroma of the tea is quite rich and invigorating, blending strong sweet malty notes with rich nuttiness. It reminds me a bit of the aroma of a strongly nutty coffee, or even one of those fancy coffee tea blends that I have tried once or twice. There is a finishing aroma of roasted peanuts. The aroma of this tea certainly wakes up your nose.

The first thing I notice is how smooth the tea is, it has a tiny bit of bitterness that gives it a bold quality and slight dryness.The taste is a blend of nuttiness, rich earthy notes, and a sweet finish of fruit.
