Tea type: black tea
Brand: Tee Aus Nepal
How to prepare it: 3-5 minutes, 85°C (185 °F)
It has a really particular scent, which doesn't recall to black tea. There is a strong flavour closer to liquorice root with a few balsamic hints - maybe a little of anise? -. Going towards the end a light spicy note arises.
Finally the usual black tea's scent show up! It has a sweet, thick woody aroma given by
its tannins. Sometimes there is something which reminds me to a Darjeeling.
At first impression there is still something, as before, which reminds me to a Darjeeling black tea, with a tiny spiceness, but without any bitterness. Then there is a light herbal note which is immediately balanced by the general sweetness of this tea. It's a tea with medium intense flavour, but sweet and smooth at the same time. It doesn't leave a particular aftertaste.
A simple tea, which slightly reminds sometime to a Darjeeling, trhough its spiceness. A good everyday tea, especially in the afternoon or to be kept with you at work. A tea to be drunk without too many tought.
My score: 7.25/10
