Margaret's Hope Classic Summer Chinary Black Tea

description

For a chinary tea, the flavors in this summer tea are exceptionally well-rounded, ample in the mouth, quite aromatic, and intense enough to stand out. Given its aromatic profile, it nearly qualifies as a muscatel tea.

The tea liquor starts with notes of wood and spice. Medium intensity, notes of fennel seed and forest floor in the centre. Finishes with hints of dry apricot which leaves a sweet lingering aftertaste. A mellow cup, yet very well balanced and ends with a sweet lingering finish.
