Adderley Exotic Winter Frost Black Tea

description

‘Dainty elegance’ is how you would describe the teas from Adderley. And offering a firm testimony to this claim is this fine winter flush pick from the estate. This tea is highly aromatic and there is an overarching sweetness to it, slightly floral and, to some extent, fruity. It's neither blunt nor coy, just reassuringly simple and thoroughly wholesome.
