This is a nice Keemun with a peppery taste. This is a very smooth tea with a slight sweetness to it. It has a very slight smoky aftertaste. A nice cup of tea in the morning.

This tea is very smooth and mellow. It brews up an amber color which is unusual for a green. I’m not really into green teas very much but I do like this one. Taste is slightly peppery and floral.

This tea smells like chocolate. When steeped I got a dark amber color that smelled a little nutty with chocolate notes in it. This tea reminds me of a dark creamy Oolong.

This is a brisk robust tea. I can’t find any bitterness and only a slight astringency. It has a nice kick to it like a strong coffee. This blend has excellent teas in it, you can taste it. It makes a very nice breakfast blend.

This is a sad morning, my pouch of Mountain Malt is empty. This is my last cup until I order more. All I can say is that my next order will be substantially more than 1 ounce. So, good by friend until we meet again.

You certainly got your money’s worth out of that little pouch, Dan! It’s so nice when a sample really earns that bump up to a bigger size. This one will definitely be in my next order from The Simple Leaf, too.

I’m almost out of Dawn and I’m going to try this one when I reorder.
