Product code: CSTN-92
Add to my notebook

Coming from the modern new wave of black teas from China, this tea is composed of dark brown leaves rolled in the form of spirals. The infusion offers fine floral and citrus aromas, supported in the mouth by a sweet and delicious liquor. Rich aromas of root vegetables (sweet potato) and peanuts develop to raise its sweet caramelized finish to an even tastier level!
