Smooth, sweet, dark amber color. Small leaves. Makes me wonder if its whole leaves. I think I had around 5 steeps and it looses taste. I got it from Dragon tea house

I had a craving for a mint tea after all heavy and spicy food we had. Very refreshing. I like Moroccan tea in general but I think this extra lemony flavor adds something special, sweet citrusy flavor. I think it’s balanced and pleasant. Probably will be excellent as iced tea

It’s bitter and I don’t want to drown it in milk and sugar. Tried diff parameters. At Steven Smith the lady suggested to make it 12 oz water 1tsp 5min steep. Bitterness decreased but it was kinda diluted not enough flavor. I prefer H&S Nahorhabi Full leaf Assam

I don’t know what’s going on with this tea. I used to love it so much. After my last drinking of it, I did notice a lot of tea powder in the bottom of my cup, that had managed to slip through the finum basket. So I’m thinking that powder sat in my cup & continued sleeping, resulting in a bitter brew. That’s my theory.

Mine is fresh and nowhere near the bottom, no powder. I also noticed that H&S has much more golden tips and smells soo sweet

i tried this one finally recently too, boychik, hoping it’d be awesome because it was so popular here and was disappointed. not terrible or anything, but nothing to write home about. and my experience with the brisk SSTs is that the recommended 5 minutes is way too long (i almost always am fine with recommended info and they’re a rare exception for me).

Hm. I’ve liked the batch I got on BF. I haven’t tried it side by side with Nahorhabi though.

I did two rinses 15 sec each since when I tried it last time I wasn’t impressed. It’s decent, not fishy , earthy. I just got spoiled with Mandala cakes.
