In Nature Teas recently contacted me about reviewing some of their teas. I will start with a black Chinese tea that they stock. This mountain tea has a beautiful dry leaf, so let’s get to tasting.
Typically I don’t put milk in Chinese black teas, as I think it stuffs up the sweetness in the tea. After making this tea a couple different ways and finding that it was too astringent, I tried it with some milk. The milk tamed the tannins and highlighted the sweet and malty flavours. This is a nice everyday tea that could be made stronger for mornings or lighter for afternoons
