Risheehat Special Summer Muscatel Black Tea

description

There is something immensely comforting about this muscatel; something that strikes at your senses right from the moment you set it to steep. Due to low oxidation, its flavors are bright but not too brisk, mellow yet arresting, bold but not imposing. The notes of fresh herbs and sweet spice made this tea immediately stand out from the rest.

Everyone I have served this tea to has been amazed. They are left smiling. Aromatic richness. Long finish on the palate and left in the cup. Faintly reminiscent of chocolate, ripe berries-about as good as it gets. You could easily live, ridiculously happy with Risheehat as your only source of tea.

Great aroma and texture

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Anytime.

Got this as a sample. I am always surprised again by the abundance of aroma types of tea, and this is a great example. A herb-fruit combination which really delights, but still with basic 'tea like' qualities to make it full and reviving. Might be a bit too gentle, will try different steep profiles.
