This black tea from Fujian (Wuyi Mountains) has beautiful full leaves, slightly rolled into thin twists. The vegetal (roasted parsnip) aromas and malty, nutty and chocolatey notes are superimposed on the bittersweet character of the liquor. The presence of buds is also manifested by a floral and sweet finish.
