093 / Petite Noir


So called because this tea is made from small leaves rather than the usual large leaves typical of black teas.  This is a great everyday tea as the small leaves translate into lighter tannins.  Easy on the palate, it tastes of sugarplums and smells of cherries and camphor. A young and polite in character tea.
