Tea Review: Vietnam Black (Modern Steep)

Vietnam Black
Modern Steep
Type: Black
Origin: Vietnam
Product Description: 
This wild-grown organic tea comes from trees 700-800 years old growing in remote Western Vietnam.  Teas from this area feature a distinctively rich, malty character with higher concentrations of antioxidants than other black teas.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a light aroma of fruit and antique wood.

The liquor is dark red with a savory and sweet aroma of baked stone fruit and brown bread.  The taste has notes of stone fruit and malt with mild astringency and a long fruity finish.

While the initial infusion had the most nuance, this tea was flavorful throughout three infusions with a lovely fruity finish.

Modern Steep is no longer in business at the time of this review.

This tea was received as a gift from a third party.
