Golden Buddha | Black Tea
“A delicious and delicate black tea; a silky sweet taste that puts a smile on my face.” -Zofia
Description: These long, handmade black tea leaves from Fujian produce an aroma that is sweet and rich. The cup is very complex, yet very balanced: smooth, strong, sweet, and fragrant with a pronounced and lingering black licorice/spicy note.
