I received this as a sample in my last order from yunomi.us, which is a company that exclusively sells Japanese tea and accessories . I love getting tea from them. I learn so much about the different types of Japanese teas just from browsing their site, and I get great info on the tea farmers themselves. I’ve gotten packages from them that have the address of the farm that produced the tea! How cool is that?!
This black tea I brewed for 3 minutes with 98 degree water, so pretty standard for black tea. It smelled stronger than I was expecting, and wonderfully woody. The taste is equally surprising, as I find it very similar to a darjeeling in flavour profile. I added milk to it (although it didn’t really need it, that’s just how I like my black teas), and this becomes a perfect breakfast tea for me. Strong and silky. Definitely to my liking.
