Adderley Exotic Winter Frost Black Tea

description

A late winter tea, it's unusually dense for a Nilgiri black tea of this season. Its flavors are more mature, tasting almost like overripe fruit. The texture is thicker than most winter flush teas and slightly astringent. Ideal for those days when you want something sweet and refreshing.

Dense and sweet, marked by notes of wild flower honey, amaryllis, overripe fruit, like banana and figs, dried apricots, and pumpkin seed.

Extremely processed tea

Extremely processed tea, indescribable flavor - lemon, green apple fruit with crunchy aftertaste. As a rarity I recommend!

Light Afternoon/Evening Tea

Likes : Great Aroma.

Best Served : Afternoon, Evening.

I received this as a sample with my order, and was pleased to have some other teas to try out! The dry leaf has a fruity scent, and the brewed leaf has a malty and vegatal scent. This is a lighter tea, great for the evenings. A little too light for me, but a great break from some of the bolder and stronger teas that I usually prefer.
