This was another tea which I received for my birthday. The flavor is very smoky, but the smell is that of a Keemun. The leaves had a golden hue to them, similar to high quality Assam. The first time I brewed the tea, I remember thinking it wasn’t strong enough. However, the second time, I remember loving the flavor strength. It seemed to variate between a nice, smoky, muscatel flavor, and a fruity, mild Assam. As the flavor seemed to change with every cup, I realized that I really liked this tea. The best time which this tea serves me is in the morning. That’s when I need a strong breakfast tea. However, though this tea is strong, it is quite smooth. The leaves are also of a great quality. I think I’ll order this one again, just like some of the other Birthday teas I’ve gotten this year.

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.
