Deliciously complex tea
Harper – MA – May 11, 2019

I've waited a few years for this pre-chingming to come back. Many black teas from China are described as having a hint of cocoa. This tea is perfect for an earthy tea lover. The dark chocolate is prominent in both the dry leaf aroma and steeped tea. The tea strikes the perfect balance of bold and subtle tastes. This is one to savor!

A light bright cup
Martin – CO – August 27, 2018

Medium amber cup. This is is a lighter cup with a distinct earthiness to the nose. A slight undertone of something like an Earl Grey’s bergamot orange or perhaps another citrus is present. The flavor is surprisingly robust for such a light colored cup.
