This brew smelled more savory and tasted more floral. The malt had toned down quite a bit and was soon overcome by a mild fruity aftertaste. The spiciness from the first brew was absent. I liked this brew more than the other tea I've tasted.
Unique flavor profile somewhere between a black tea, and an oolong. Dark, syrupy, molasses flavors and a long-lived leaf that allows for multiple infusions make for a quality tea.
The tea was packaged nicely. The box was undamaged despite coming so far. I’m drinking the ruby black tea now – Yum yum! I’m really enjoying it. It took me to a calm place and I’ll be buying more for sure.
