Absolutely divine. It's balanced in all the best ways. It's earthy, sweet, and lightly bitter. Chiang Rai Black is not what you expect, which is why it is so perfect.
I really love this tea so far especially in the morning! Not bitter at all. I can steep it a few times and the taste is consistent throughout all steeps! It’s got a bold taste, but also light. I would buy it again :)
If you are looking for experience, quality, and detail, go to Paru. Make sure to grab a fresh tea when you pick up the rest of your tea!
This tea has an elegance about it - rich yet not obtrusive . It is now a favorite of mine !
Maybe this says more about my taste (or lack thereof) than it does about the tea itself, but the tea lacked flavor even when I steeped it for a long time. I like strong black tea and this wasn’t as strong as I’d hoped. 💕 won’t stop me from coming back to shop though!
