drank Black Pearl Tea by Lipton
115 tasting notes

I was quite surprised with this one. I received this tea as a gift (not for a birthday, or other special occasion, but because my family knows my deep appreciation for tea). I usually do not like Lipton, and try to stay away from it. As for this tea, I had to try it, and was astonished by its malty flavor. However, this tea contained MANY stems on a stem-to-leaf ratio. This is not close to the best tea I have had, but if I am offered Lipton again, this is the tea I will choose (as it is better than their other teas).

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.
