really good,specially if you have a classical double decker teapot :)
I had this tea a while back and if memory serves me right, I think it was certainly a good tasting tea overall. It was serve piping hot with sugar on the side, but I don’t think my friend who served the tea used a samovar or a double kettle brew technique. He boiled the water fiercely and then added the tea which was about 4 teaspoon worth, at which he took the pot out of the heat. It was only fifteen or 20 minutes later he strained the tea of the leaves and serve me and himself about a cup. I knew it was gonna be a mouth puckering and face cringing bitter tea, but I managed to take a sip.
To my surprise, it was a flat and smooth tasting tea with a bit of minty chemically flavor at the end. I think I put too much sugar in the tea or it was really weak but I enjoyed, though I was kind of disappointed on the all the effort it took to brew this tea. Certainly its the first I tried of Turkish tea and definitely won’t be the last! What ever coompany or tea garden this tea was produced in I enjoyed a lot.
Buying this is all right if used in a versitile manner of blends, or flavoring. Is the tea good? Worth buying? Worth drinking it and falling in love? No and yes. Its a tea that will sell by quantities in huge bags and delivers a bit more taste than a lipton. But, when its all comes down its just an average say near below average. Its really flat with a hint of wintergreen and whatever the leaves was sprayed with! No matter how many infusion ( if possible) or the methods between western or Turkish brew methods its just plain if not worse when brewed in Turkish style. Personally, I blame on the way the tea is harvested, being cut with clippers and possible fertilized with chemicals that explains the chemical after taste. The tea afterword was just butchered of taste and quality. Good tea for bulk and everyday use but in the end its nothing special.
This is the tea that I grew up drinking, so naturally my nostalgic attachment to it biases my rating. Even in adulthood its still a refreshing taste that never gets old. Taken with a single sugar cube in the authentic Turkish style, this tea will always be a go-to in my book.
Anyone here knows a word which equals more than “awesome” ? Splendid aroma and refreshing smell. I love Turkish tea.
A well-balanced Earl Grey, not too bergamot-y, and not too flat. Quite rounded and nice on the tongue. Also very reasonably priced for how good it is, at least, in my area. One of the few really reliable teas I can easily obtain in shops within mere minutes of my house. :)

A real treat for the Earl Grey Connoisseur.
Strong, flavourful Earl Grey that goes very well with milk. Earl Grey is one of my favourite teas, and Caykur makes a full-bodied range of black teas that get me up and going in the morning. :)
This is one of my go-to teas for basic black tea. I love this tea, especially the one with cardamom in it; it’s just smooth and fabulous.
