Fujian Baroque from Adagio Teas

Scent in tin: Like sweet chocolate-covered raisins, with just a hint of fermentation
Ratio: 1 tsp leaves: 12 oz. tap water
Steeped: 5 min.@ 212 degrees (boiling)

This tea is smooth, rich, and malty, with almost a “creamy” background note. There is a slight astringency on the tongue, and a light coating left behind that is quite pleasant. The flavor is carries a hint of yeast, almost an “aged” note. It’s a sweeter brew, with chocolate undertones that roll over the palate. Excellent flavor and texture – very luxurious in a dark, nearly opaque liquor. Coffee lovers will probably enjoy this as well.Admit it – you thought it was an April fool’s joke that I was posting again today, didn’t you? :-)

Stop back in on Friday for the first weekly “ID That Tea” contest…
