Thank you Stacy for this sample. I brewed according to the suggested parameters of 4mins. A very nice black tea! I don’t have a refined enough palate to explain or tell the difference between this and some other black teas I have tried:(
It has such good review here that I thought I would be able to taste the differences but I can’t :(
Will have to try some more of this later on in my tea “journey”
All in all a very nice cup of tea though!

I am pretty new to trying different types of loose leaf teas. Growing up we only ever had Chinese restaurant tea or bagged orange pekoe. Later on I tried genmai cha at the Japanese restaurants and added that permanently to my tea cupboard.

So far, I like oolongs and black. Most often I drink straight teas but I do like some flavoured ones as long as they don’t taste fakey or chemically. I would like to try more greens, whites and more Rooibos’ as well as anything that doesn’t have caffeine in it to add to my cupboard.

An attempt at a rating system:
90-100 worthy of being permanently stocked in my cupboard
80-89 great tea would love to have in my tea cupboard but probably in smaller quantities
70-79 very nice tea but I don’t necessarily have to have it
60-69 will drink it but not choose to stock it
50-59 prefer not to drink it unless it is all I have
