Well, I’ve done it. I finished the entire box of this, my now-favorite black tea. I’m glad Samovar has a coupon code right now so I can order more. I can’t bear the thought of the cold fall and winter days ahead without this in my tea cupboard. I don’t know what is in this, but it’s addictive.

Shhh….. I think I know what that tea is… read Samovar’s description of the tea and the village that produces it, then read here: http://www.rishi-tea.com/store/golden-yunnan-organic-fair-trade-black-tea.html
and here: http://www.rishi-tea.com/mannongproject.php

I could be wrong, about Rishi being Samovar’s supplier, but a lot of their teas seem to connect strongly, like this.

Even if not, though I haven’t had this tea, since you really like it, I’m sure you’d also like this one: http://www.rishi-tea.com/store/golden-needle-organic-fair-trade-black-tea.html
It is my favorite black tea so far…

That does look quite similar, and the price is certainly much better. I’ll give it a try before placing a Samovar order. Thanks!

You’re welcome! Again, it might not be the exact same tea, but that is my conspiracy theory. I think you’ll like Golden Needle though… I bought it last December (for the first time) when Rishi had a one day sale (half off!, so $6/oz).

Bio

I like strong, robust flavors. My current favorites include strong black teas (Keemuns, Yunnan teas and Assams, for example), flavored blacks such as Harney’s Paris, oolongs of any kind, and gyokuros. I like Rooibos and honeybush teas as well, and other herbal blends to help me relax in the evening.

I am willing to try just about anything, but I am not particularly fond of jasmine tea, very fruity or heavily flavored blends, anything with pineapple; and I know this is practically heresy, but I don’t like Darjeelings.
