It’s been a while since my last tasting note. Like many new teas of mine, this one was a gift. I decided to try it in the morning, because I ran out of my Golden Tipped Assam. This tea had all the true traits of Ceylon tea, and was actually quite satisfying with my morning breakfast. I also had a cup in the evening, which meant I was able to have the time to enjoy it more. I really liked the quality of the sachets- they weren’t like others I’ve seen. Also, there were almost no stems, which is rare for teas in sachets. Quite pleased with this one, but it could have been a little stronger.

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
