Imagine you're deep in a damp, mossy forest. This is one of the most interesting cups of dark tea I've had. The ripe leaves are aged and go through a natural fermentation process before being gently dried. This creates such a smooth flavor I haven't experienced in most other dark teas. Flavors such as mushroom, leather and dirt bring out a rich, deep earthy feel. Plus, there's absolutely no astringency or bitterness even when you steep for a long time (10min+).
