Had this again over the weekend. I have to admit that I’m hoarding my last few tea bags of this because I don’t want to buy more tea (I have enough and I’m moving in 1.5 weeks) but don’t have any other genmaichas in my cupboard. Hopefully I can sipdown some of my Della Terra samples to justify placing a Verdant order for their genmaichas….. :)
Um, wow. This tea is FABULOUS. The first Earl Grey I ever tried was Tazo’s, and I didn’t find it pleasant at all. I thought it tasted like soap. In fact, I was hesitant to even give Earl Grey another chance at all. This kind, however, is a game-changer. The bergamot has the perfect amount of presence, without overpowering the whole tea. I don’t really taste the lavender, but perhaps it’s there to cut some of the bergamot’s acidity? In any even, my hat goes off to you, Choice! You’ve cured me of my Earl Grey aversion, and I will definitely be drinking this again.
A review of Wild Forest Black Tea by Choice Organic Tea
Company: Choice Organic
Tea Name: Wild Forest Black
Tea Type/Varietal: black
Region: South East Asia
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: dark red
Water Temp: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes
Using freshly boiled water I put one tea bag in my cup and left it to steep for five minutes. The tea’s color is a dark red, velvety when placed directly under the light. The tea’s aroma is mildly roasted scent and when I sip of the tea it is wonderfully hot and heady roasted cup of tea. The tea taste strong and is not at all astringent; in fact it is dry and wet. Because my cup of teas is always hot, the wetness is not discern straight away as well as the dryness that is felt upon swallowing since the hot tea burns first and cannot be enjoyed until slightly cooler than this drinker prefers of it.
Overall tasting notes: smooth, hearty cup of tea that is dry when swallowed …tea leaves a drying effect on the palette.
Cup’s characteristic: roasted cup of tea
Liquor color: dark red
Taste: dry and freshly cup of tea
