origin: china

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Fujian Baroque is a black tea from the Fujian province of China. Its general attributes are similar to the Golden Monkey, but the leaf is finer and the aroma even more pronounced. The exquisite tapestry of naturally sweet cocoa notes, fruitiness and glimmers of spice are unmatched by any other tea. Softly sweet and velvety, with leafy autumn notes and soft, mineral aftertaste. Fujian Baroque can be brewed light or strong; the taste will remain smooth with very delicate astringency.

Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      Didn't enjoy it much. The taste was just a bit off. Hard to describe exactly what was wrong, but its not something I'd recommend trying

      This tea is an interesting black tea that skews toward the smoothness and likeness in flavor profile to Assam. There are additional chocolate flavor that somewhat overpower the mineral notes that I very much prefer. It's not my favorite but it's an interesting tea overall.

      Really nice budget friendly black tea. nice cocoa notes. Held up to at least 3 steeps. One at 3 minutes, 4 minutes, and 5 minutes. The middle steep with a little sugar and oat milk tasted like hot chocolate.

      This tea has a natural sweetness and is very smooth with little to no bitterness and a light body. I enjoy it without adding any milk or sugar, but it's also nice lightly sweetened. It smells sweet and leafy with a hint of honey in the aroma, with some notes of dark chocolate and the mineral taste.

      Love the cocoa notes and the smooth mineral taste. Just a dash of cream and I'm hooked! This is one of the teas I frequently have after dinner.

      Smooth black tea, with some nice wine and coconut notes.

      The flavor pallet is very complex but subtle. The cocoa notes come through the smooth texture.

      It is a black tea. I can't say its spectacular, but I do enjoy it. I use it as a base to carry other flavors and I'll drink it alone when I feel like I've had too many flavored things for one day. Good with heavy-tasting snacks as a balancer.
