Tea Review: Black & Gold (Metolius Artisan Tea)

Black & Gold
Metolius Artisan Tea/Suttle Tea
Type: Black
Origin: China, Yunnan
Product Description: Beautiful, aromatic leaf-and-bud black tea from small tea gardens in Yunnan, China. Black & Gold makes a delicious cup of hot tea and an even better cold.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of aged wood, wheat bread, and molasses.

The orange amber infusion has a sweet aroma of wheat, molasses, and baked squash.  The taste is mildly astringent with notes of brown sugar, dates, and wheat with a dry finish.

The full flavor and aroma comes out in the first infusion and a second infusion wouldn't be recommended.  It does, however, produce a beautiful red liquor.
