Whoa, I have to echo the Purrfect Cup here that this is a “kick you in the face” kind of a morning tea.

When I first sipped this I thought I detected a smoky note so I’m curious, is there any keemun in here or is it my imagination? Bold, saucy and malty notes are contributed by the assam and spicy, peppery notes by the yunnan, this is practically a meal in itself! I am a wimp, I drank this with soymilk but that is how I drink a lot of my breakfast teas. You could drink this plain, there isn’t a lot of astringency in the cup. Might try it for 3 minutes next time.

I love black tea blends and I haven’t been disappointed with any of the Devotea’s so far. They are discontinuing this blend so you might want to act soon if you intend to try it. :)

Glad you liked it. It’s an odd thing to have a blend that hardy anyone buys, yet every reviewer loves.

I have not had any of this yet, but I love the name. And the reviews make me want to try it. Guess I’ll have to make an order soon. :)

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick
