Lovely black tea, not too tanniny.
Tastes like a burnt Oolong. At least that’s better than the TeaGrschwender version.
Extremely average, but I brewed it at 175 and it was slightly better. I wish it was organic.
A brown oolong, much crisper and woodier than its contemporaries. Smells like a deep forest.
$69.99/lb and worth at least 2/3rds of it. Smells much smoother than it tastes. Vaguely reminiscent of popcorn.
Yeah it’s good. But totally unremarkable.
I probably burned it. If not, there’s a reason I hate Darjeeling. Totally flavorless with no aroma
Pretty decent for a black. Pleasant, mildly fermented.
Meh. It’s not bad.
Sold at $80/lb. Smells, looks and tastes incredible. Royal Gold actually invokes the image of being in Yunnan province. Scores 9 out of 10 in my book only because it’s not organic.
Basically milk tea… without any milk! Creamy aroma and taste.
Thoroughly boring, could be a cheap darjeeling.
Utterly mind blowing aroma. Whoa… crisp. One of the cutest, most drinkable teas.
Pretty cruddy. It’s drinkable… I guess…
By far the most beautiful looking tea of all time—truly deserving of the name “precious eyebrows”. Despite the enormous price difference, TeaHaus’s is better.
Almost no aroma. Taste is about as average as you can get, but it is incredibly smooth, like drinking water.
2nd steep: added a small bit of black rose from zhi tea – now somewhat chocolate-y, with hints of rose – very good blend!
1st steep: seems like a pretty basic darjeeling
first steep: light, grassy scent; a little bit of smokiness on the mid-palate, with subtle floral notes on the backend
