Smell in the bag makes me think of cocoa, honey, and caramel.
Steeped: it smells rhubarbish.
Taste: This is really good. Kind of citrusy, with a little bit of natural sweetness. That rhubarb like smell is also there on taste in the background. Clean mouthfeel, goes down easy…I want another cup.

Did you add milk or sugar, or drink it neat? I brewed it 3 minutes in 190F water and got a tannic bitterness that competed with the aromatics.

For Indian teas I almost always drink them straight. I’ll have to look through my cupboards for this sample and try it again.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
