The colour is rich and dark (like French press coffee), but there is barely any bitterness in the brew. The tea’s energy is grounding and warming, making it ideal for afternoon drinking during the PNW’s rainy season. Having been stored in an ideal environment, the flavour has developed elegantly; the cakes are loosely pressed (by stone), also helping the tea to mature. This is a beautiful yet very affordable introduction to the world of aged tea!
