Thank you LiberTEAS for sharing a sample of this with me.
Its a solid english breakfast that is helping me shake the fog brain this morning.
WOOO!!! It’s the weekend! Sorry for any of you who work weekends, but surely you get some form of weekend or time off or you atleast make alot of money because you work so much and your happy about your days off or all the money you make and I will be happy for you, but right now it’s my weekend…. A HOLIDAY WEEKEND, and so I’m elated, not to mention that I can finally do some tasting notes (deep breath of air), which I’ve been too busy to do all week.
Now that that’s out of the way…
I want to thank LiberTEAS for this sample that I was very glad made it into my sample box. The dry leaf smelled like something I would eat for breakfast-sweet and syrupy. The color of this tea was a deep redish brown. I can’t seem to make out in my hand written note what the wet leaf smelled like though.
The first few sips I got a strong woody/walnut impression that leaned toward, but not quite, malty. Within a few sips I started to detect the buttery sweet notes that would end up being present throughout. I was second geussing myself as to whether it was a floral sweetness or not, so I won’t commit either way.Then came the malty! I’m not overly excited about malty tea, but this one has a great balance of malt/wood/sweet worth noting. There’s enough malt to give it more depth, yet still allow it to be a sweet gulper once it’s cool enough. It’s got a little dryness, but not bitter at all, and there’s a woody aftertaste with just a little sweetness mixed in.
All in all, a fine cuppa and a wonderful suggestion by LiberTEAS.
Thank you LiberTEAS for this sample!
This tea has plenty of great qualities. Its thick, savory and sweetly smoky. The aroma rising up from the wet leaves, is that of delicious collard greens (of which I LOVE). The liquid is thick and has only a slight dry astringent aftertaste.
The only other discovery after the leaves unfurl – several of the leaves are broken in half. This doesn’t seem to distract or diminish the quality of taste.
Very lovely tea!
One last cup before sending the rest off to friends…tea friends ROCK :)
Started my day with 3 cups of this! Very nice! See previous notes :)
Wow! Loving this breakfast blend… although I don’t think it’s actually a blend … I think it’s pure Nigiri. It is rich and flavorful, smooth, malty and absolutely delicious. A lovely tea that manages to find the balance between invigorating-get-up-and-go-ness and slow-down-and-enjoy-the-deliciousness.
An outstanding breakfast tea.
Oh yeah! My Lemon NuStevia Test worked! Check this out
The last two entries! AND the contest is up!!!! I will try to include this link with each post today for those who might see my occasional tasting note or two :)
I hope you’ll enter!
This is really good! Like…REALLY good! I’m going to have several cups today!
It’s a bit smoky without being ‘gunpowder-esque’ I suppose but it’s incredibly smooth and pretty sweet even.
I’m going to try this one again with a little Lemon but with a twist! I’m actually going to blog about this lemon product HERE
Be sure to check it out because I’ll be running a contest, too!!!!
Wow! This is remarkable. This is truly a unique green tea, quite unlike any other that I’ve tasted. It is perhaps the smokiest green tea that I’ve tried, and the smoke element gives this a pleasing savory quality. The union of rich green tea flavors together with the smoke is quite delicious, lightly sweet and very savory … Definitely a must try, in my opinion!
This is my very first tea from this company and I always like my first attempts at new-to-me-tea-companies! Woot!
The dry leaves smell exceptional! Crisp and airy yet strong, black, and bold!
It infuses to a dark brown but not solid black looking-type. It’s a nice medium-strength black that is fairly smooth but quite rich. It’s on the verge of chewy prior to going down the hatch! This is quite the catch! A nice black tea, indeed!
