sipdown on this one! (136). I have quite enjoyed this one, so thank you cteresa for sending this my way. it’s also given me my mission to go exploring toronto some weekend to get into the other neighbourhoods and explore the offerings there. thanks again for being a swap buddy!
Thank you cteresa for sending this one my way. Let me begin by saying, I don’t like most orange pekoe. It never really tastes all that great and i would usually prefer to be drinking water. This tea? REALLY nice! it’s the sort of tea i wish i could buy a giant bag of and give to my parents as i think this would really suit their everyday tea needs. This is a good medium type tea – no bitterness, incredibly smooth, with a hint of sweetness throughout the sip. Thanks so much for sharing Cteresa I quite like this one!
SIPDOWN! Thanks to LiberTEAS for this sample!
Aww, here’s another one I let sit too long. Very little flavor left in this. Too bad. Again, I’ll just give this the current average rating here on Steepster.
The leaves were interesting as there were quite a few bits of twig in there. I haven’t seen that before. It was probably 30% twigs and 70% leaves. Now if only I knew what it tasted like. :( I’m a bad swap buddy.
This is the first time I taste this tea. A very herbal flavor, with a beautiful scent. I would recommend it for an afternoon snack.
I love this tea. I’ve never bought it but it’s my no. 1 choice at one of my local tea houses (in Portugal). It’s very fresh, and as with most teas I drink it unsweetened.
Very mild flavour, sweet and soft, and good to drink at any time of the day.
One of my favorite teas from Gorreana, I usually use it to make my own azorean blend. Strong, but not bitter flavour.
I got this from LiberTEAS in a nice box of tea goodies! Thank you so much!
I really quite enjoy this one!
It has a peachy element to it!
And I do love peach!
Fruity and a good evening wake me without jarring me awake!
I feel this could soothe me into a nice mellow evening!
I just tore into this wonderful little drink a moment age.Dry leaf smell made me hungry. I’m not proficient in cooking spices to recognise what it was; a sweet minty smell. Red brown color. Wet leaves didn’t unfurl much,stemmy with pieces.First drink caught me off gaurd, so smooth yet rich. The maltiness, which reminded me of red wine, stood out.A wisp of smoke was present along woth a minty sweet/sour I felt in my outer jaws.Full body yet light and airy. I went ahead and steeped a second time and was glad I did. It may have lost too much for some of the more experienced drinkers, but you will hear no complaints from me. The malt eroded away to even sweeter notes. Something else about this drink; it’s very thirst quenching-no astringency. I have to agree with a post I saw (spoiler) from TeaEqualsBliss where she said it was ‘juicey’. Thanks Pureleaf for this one. I only wish I had enough to drink it all day. That’s OK, it’s going on my wish list. Yummy for my tummy.

If you,ve not heard his solo stuff and are a fan treat yourself. He spans several genres you may not predict.
Also having one last cup of this before passing the rest along in a swap…
This tea is so cool. I had no idea there was Azorean tea!
This tastes really good. I have to imagine that being grown on one island in the middle of the ocean, nearly a thousand miles away from any continent makes for good growing. It’s light, but it’s still got this sweet, tart taste to it, like apples almost.
It’s also a bit floral, or something perfume-like, but not in any sort of overwhelming fashion. It’s very nice to drink right now while I pretend to study but am actually learning more about Azores. It is an international trade final, so it fits in there somehow.
Thanks for sending me plenty of this, TeaEqualsBliss!
Yup! Yup! Yup! More tea please! MORE!!!!! Helps me write…helps me write…jitters…perhaps I should start in with the matcha! LOL
One last cuppa before sending the rest to WONKS :)
Thank you LiberTEAS for this great sample!
These dark and full leaves produce a very nice cup of tea!
Smooth, slightly creamy and even a touch of roasted nuts. This tea is definitely on the lighter side, which is a great alternative to a bolder and more astringent breakfast tea. I find this tea could be enjoyed throughout the day, because of it’s more mellow tone.
The rest via swaps! Be on the look-out!!
I had this sent to me by Gorreana after they caught wind of me whining about it on the SororiTEA Sisters page. What I didn’t expect was to receive so much of the stuff. In short, I adore this pekoe. It has a character quite like a Darjeeling OP but without the spicy overtones. That could be a good or bad thing, depending on your preference. I found it to be very balanced, sweet, and barely bitter.
A wonderful Orange Pekoe. Nice, medium-bodied, bright flavor. Sweet, honey-esque tones. Definitely not your grocery store variety Orange Pekoe!
This one is a goodie!
backlogging from last week…
had 3 cups earlier today…backlogging…satisfying. See previous notes :)
Wonderful rich flavour. Light and clean, moreso than most black teas.
The estate where it’s grown is very impressing.
a great light green tea:)
Pretty good for a bagged black tea…satisfying, semi-bold, not too shabby at all :) Backlogging from yesterday…
Wowzers. Pretty bad.
