I’ve lately developed a great appreciation for sweeter, lighter black teas that are best drunk without milk. When I saw this Dikom, I wanted to see how it compares to some of my favourite light black teas.
The light astringency and sweet and malty notes make this an easy-drinking tea that could work well as both a morning or afternoon tea. Infused a bit longer, the malty notes give the liquor a nice richness. Going with a shorter infusion time results in a refreshing, brisk cup for an afternoon pick-me-up. This tea might appeal to those who like Ceylon, Darjeeling and Yunnan black teas. Putting milk in this tea is not advised, as the milk suffocates the flavour complexity
