On the lighter and more delicate side, this is highly flavorful and is a really great spring tea. Depending on how long you steep for it changes the flavor completely. I recommend not going over 2 min or it becomes too astringent.

This tea is just awesome in all regards, flavorful, very “toasty”, soft and delicate with some nice astringency like a light artichoke. I just can’t say enough good things about it. I have been drinking it for 2 weeks now and it is by far my favorite green to reach for.

Very sweet floral tea, extremely aromatic. I enjoyed this tea and am new to Darjeeling in general so its hard to have a serious opinion about this particular one. But its definitly worth a try

drank Asam Kama Black by Tea Trekker

Strong brew, a little flat or one note. I enojoy the tea but its more of a value everyday tea than something i feel like i’m treating myself with. Ordered 4 oz of this but after the first cup I feel like that may have been an overkill, though at $10 or $2.5/oz its still a bargin.

Very light, pale color with a pleseant and sweet smell. The taste is light, refreshing and subtle. You can taste a little of the the fire or charcoal but its barely noticable. This is extremely smooth and I think should be a great drink for the spring/summer

Yummm, this is an extremely soft and floral tea, not necessarily a morning brew but its so delicate and unique that you just can’t not appreciate this tea. I received this as a free sample from Tea Trekker and was excited to try this. I was not disappointed

drank Troika by Kusmi Tea

Decadent yet light and airy. Could use a little more punch but overall enjoyed this black. Was perfect for a spring morning while settling into the day. I like some of the other Kusmi tea’s better but this is still a great tea.

Pretty solid everyday tea for the price. I find it has hints of tobacco in a good way and is worth having this on hand for those who like strong black tea.

drank Mandarin Green by Adagio Teas

Beat my expectations. This is a light, crisp and sweet flavored green. It is better than most of the flavored teas I have tried from Adagio, i can’t put my finger on it but its just great in the spring. Yum
