Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: In Nature
The best Black Tea in the market. Superior taste and aroma. One can drink at any time and even during meals. Unlike with most Chinese Teas, people will often add sugar and milk. It is also known as Red Tea (hong cha).
This tea brews to a reddish-brown colour with an exquisite rich soothing taste and aroma. An Hui region
I’ve been reading all kinds of lovely reviews about teas from In Nature from my SororiTea Sister, Jennifer, but I haven’t yet tried any of them … until now!
This really is a fantastic black tea. I mean, like FANTASTIC!
The flavor is remarkably smooth and rich. It has almost a creamy consistency to it and a very toothsome quality. I can taste notes of malt which lends itself to a fresh baked bread kind of characteristic.
This is truly one of the most delightful black teas I’ve yet to encounter. It is so delicious it certainly doesn’t need enhancement (aka flavoring) … although it is quite nice with a drizzle of agave nectar and I found that the sweetener brought out some caramel-y notes that I didn’t notice before adding the agave nectar. I wouldn’t add milk to this just because I’d be afraid it would spoil the amazing complexity to the cup and I find it to be just perfect without the milk… but I imagine it would also taste really lovely with it too.
This is about as perfect as a black tea can get!
