I couldn’t resist picking up some of this tea at the New York Coffee and Tea Festival. It turns out that it’s experimental because a farmer who usually makes oolong tried his hand at making a black tea.The result was so unusual that they decided to carry it. Sammy’s tasting notes caught my eye right away: morning mist, yellow cake and peaches. They might sound like a strange combination but they perfectly sum up this tea.The top note is a really refreshing vegetal note that I’ve never experienced in a black tea. Jo J found it to be a bit mossy (in a good way!). It reminded me of what the grass, wet with dew, smelled like when I went camping as a kid. In the middle there is a sweetness that really does taste a bit like yellow cake batter. Yum! Each sip ends with a peachy note.
