Due to 'bug-bitten' tea leaves, this tea has an amazing sweet honey flavour and malty taste worth your attention.
Dry tea leaves have a sweet tobacco, woody, honey aroma. The complex and multifaceted aroma promises an interesting tea experience. The warmed tea leaf reveals bakery, berry, and cream motifs. Rinsed tea leaves reveal woody, berry, and marmalade notes. The aroma goes into perfumery and confectionery motifs, which makes this tea very special compared to other red teas.
The taste of tea is sweet and soft with woody, honey, and nutty notes. Tobacco, berry, and chocolate motifs are harmoniously combined in this fragrant, thick, and multifaceted drink. The tea gives a dark amber color infusion, a slightly creamy texture, and leaves a sweet long-lasting aftertaste. A very sweet honey, caramel aroma remains in the empty bowl. With longer infusion, tea can develop astringency and deep woody notes.
