MAGIE NOIRE

Tea type: flavoured pu-erh and smoked tea

Brand: Kodama

How to prepare it: 3'30" minutes, 85 °C (185 °F)


Dry scent:

Really spicy and citrusy. Immediately there are strong notes of cloves, cardamom and cinnamon. At the same time however there is an explosive citrus note, which balance the spiceness of this tea, giving fresh, fizzy touch to the infusion. At the end a few smoked notes arise.


Liquor's colour:

Dark brown.


Liquor's scent:

Really consistent as before with a strong spiceness wich perfecetly mix up with the citrus notes. However now the citrusy side of the tea is less strong than before, while the pu-erh tea gain space.


Taste:

Truly particoular: it remembers a chai tea, but not so spicy; a pu-erh tea, with its earthiness, which leave space to slightly smokyness. The orange isn't directly present, but you can feel it through its freshness that eases the spicyness of the tea. It's really full-

bodied, almost thick, due to the pu-erh tea. At the end a light ginger note arises.


Conclusion:

A tea close to lots of differents tea: from spicuness to smokyness and from earthiness to freshness. /It's definetely an unusual blend, but really interesting.

My score: 8/10
