Description: An exquisite combination of flavours from Scotland and China. Those familiar with Pu-erh know that it exhibits a musty, earthy character, but when combined with the sweetness of caramel and toffee, it delivers a sweet, burnt, sugary flavour that's a perfect blend. This tea is like dessert in a cup and delivers a sweet, decadent finish.
