    My go to tea
    This is probably the tea I reach for the most, both by itself as for blending.
    Very balanced, good combination of depth and balance. Fairly malty and just a hint of smoke.

    Makes a great base for a russian caravan with an oolong and with some yunnan you can get an extra sweet and malty brew.

    Don't know what it'd be like with milk, probably would handle it fine but my guess is it would kill much of the brightness

    Fantastic ... tried a lot of black teas from "luxury" brands to learn what my palette preferred ... this particular product really stood out from the crowd. Nice, complete flavor. Reminds me of my visits to Hong Kong. Sadly I live in the US, so I have to patiently wait for my shipments to arrive!
