Tea Review: Black Tea (Zealong)

Black Tea
Type: Black
Origin: New Zealand
Product Description: Zealong Organic Black tea is a full-bodied, deep-amber liquor with a sweet, honeyed undertone and smooth, silky finish.

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of fragrant wood and brown bread.

The infusion is red-orange with an aroma that is floral and spicy with notes of baked fruit and freshly baked brown bread.  The taste is rich, floral, and mildly savory with a long, sweet, floral finish.

This tea is almost fool-proof.  If you forget and leave it steeping, you'll still have a delicious cup of tea.  Two steepings produced full flavor and aroma while a third infusion mellowed noticeably.

This tea was purchased by me.
