Recent Tasting Notes
My first tasting note for this tea was 9 months ago. I finally stopped hoarding it and finished off the last teabag today. Took me long enough :)
I still quite like this tea. It’s drier and less floral than I remember, but age is probably a factor in that. It’s good for a quick work brew. This goes on the “ideal cupboard constant stock” list for sure.
I think of this as a really classic green tea. It’s a light green color with a flowery aroma. The flavor is nutty, almost savory, with a hint of rice. It’s also a bit dry, if that makes sense.
I like to drink this when I’m working because it stays tasty even if you forget to take the teabag out, and it re-steeps well either way. It never gets bitter. It is also nice and energizing. I shared this tea with a co-worker when he was feeling very tired and he said that it picked him right up. I also like this as an iced tea – I brew hot, add honey, leave the teabags in there, and let it cool (first on the counter and then in the fridge).
This is hands-down my favorite tea. I bought a three-pack (totaling 60 bags) on sale in December and I’m down to 8 bags. The only reason I haven’t ordered more is because it distracts me from trying the other teas in my cupboard!
For the record (and the skeptics), I have no affiliation with this company and no one has paid me to write this review.
This tea was a gift to me from a friend who knows the family who owns this estate. It is very much as described. A strong, earthy dark brown tea that is deep and satisfying on its own, with a grassy flavor. It blends well with milk and sweetener without losing its character, and makes a good base for chai – cardamom in particular seems to marry happily with this tea.
