A hearty black tea from Yi Xing, China. It’s packed with deep flavours reminiscent of 100% forastero dark chocolate, baked potato skin, roasted dandelion root, and roasted sunflower seeds with the shell. Even though the flavour is strong, it doesn’t have the bitterness or astringency that often comes with a strong black tea. Its deep flavours make me feel as if I am drinking a good black coffee without the bitterness and the coffee taste. A black tea lovers' must-try.
