I’ve been waiting for this sample to arrive with bated breath!
Latakia Blend Black Tea from Brooklyn Tea Blends Co. – this is a premium tea company with some great-looking blends.
When it arrived, I instantly grabbed for my Bodum glassware (kind of like the one on the image to the left) – so I could get maximum enjoyment out of this premium tea blend – seeing the true colour of it through the glass as I take my first sip.
The colour is a beautiful golden amber and as I lift my cup the smokiness of the Lapsang Souchong in this blend hits me and invites me to take a drink.
Wow! This is truly a tea for connoisseurs but with bold enough flavours for even the tea-drinking novice to pick-up on the sophistication of the blend.
This tea is warming, like a warm broth, but with a plethora of aftertastes that highlight the three types of tea in this blend – Lapsang Souchong, Keemun, and Dian Hong – delivering pine smoke, floral, and roasted undertones.
Here’s what Brooklyn Tea Blends Co. say about the tea:
At least 60% Superfine Lapsang Souchong real pine smoked (not scented) full loose tea leaf. First Grade Keemun, Premium Dian Hong.
Brooklyn Tea Blends CARAVAN TRIAD is a perfect compliment to any single malt whisky. One of the greatest gentleman of the last century, Sir Winston Churchill, preferred a smoked tea aroma to complement the taste of his single malt scotch.
A taste worthy of a true gentleman!
And I couldn’t agree more!
