As much as we love White2Tea's Modern Witch, The Stranger kicks it up several notches. This is an exceptionally smooth blend of small batch produced ripe material with a light fermentation. Tasting notes include a gorgeous chocolate quality, with a bit of sweet root, forest floor, and a touch of florals on finish. There is a pervasive delicate sweetness balanced with just the faintest edge of bitterness. The mouthfeel is silky and slick.
This tea is ready to drink now, but because it has a lighter fermentation it will continue to develop over the years. It is an exceptional ripe and certainly a good candidate for putting some away to see how it develops with time.
