This black tea comes from the Fuji province in China. The long scraggly leaves have some tippy gold ends -- it's a really nice cut of leaf.
We like it because it has a traditional black tea flavor with some slight apricot, and brown sugar and orange flavor notes in the background. It's not astringent or bitter, and it's forgiving and easy to steep. You can make it strong or weak depending on personal preference. It's a softer, lighter mouthfeel and not as thick or bold as an Assam or breakfast tea.
Tasting Notes: mellow black tea, apricot, brown sugar.
Steep: 1 tsp of tea for 8oz water. Water temperature: 205. Steep time 3-4 minutes. Sweetener: Optional
