Not as strong today…apparently I had another stash of this tho! LOL Oops!
I am drinking tonight what I guess is this same tea, only a bagged version of it. I prefer the loose leaf, but this is still pretty good as a bagged tea. A strong savory tone to this … more so than I noticed with the loose leaf. It is almost broth-y, but then I brewed it strong.
Nice, but as I said, the loose leaf is better.
Started my day with 2 cups of this…see previous notes…a bit on the lighter side this morning, tho :)
2 cups to start my day! See previous notes :)
Backlogging two cups from earlier today…see other notes ;)
having a cup before sending the rest in a mini swap…LOVE this! See previous notes…
Started my day with this today…see previous notes :)
Bakey – Bready – YUM! Had two cups of this so far today! See previous reviews :)
Tea from Portugal? Wow! I need to drink more of this before giving it a rating.
Awesome! This is Hysson? I had a really REALLY bad Hysson in the past, so bad that it made me grimace when I received this Hysson… I was worried that this would be just as horrible as the last. Boy was I wrong!
This is delightful. Really delightful. Sweet, hints of apple-y sweet/tartness and a roasted nut taste in the distance. Light grassy taste, very light. A very rich and almost creamy kind of texture to it. Really, really good.
While the Orange Pekoe and Pekoe black teas from Gorreana are quite similar with their deep flavors, this one is lighter in character. It is still strong enough to take milk, which I prefer. I quite like it, but it stands out less in my mind than Gorreana’s other black offerings. It is not flowery or spicy, which is a good thing in my eyes. I’ll add more detailed notes next time I have a cup.
What a fantastic tea, from Portugal no less! I was very excited to try this European tea – I didn’t even know it existed until recently – and I was not disappointed. It is robust, rich, and flavorful. It is highly reminiscent of The Simple Leaf’s excellent Mountain Malt tea, but doesn’t become bitter when steeped for more than 3 minutes. I don’t feel that the flavor is lacking in any way.
It is great on ice as well, using the method I described in my previous post about Taylor’s of Harrogate’s Ntingwe Kwazulu.
Shipping took quite a long time, but they included an extra tea for me, so it’s all good! I will definitely order more in the future.
Revisiting this one today.
Here’s my full-length review of it: http://sororiteasisters.com/2011/06/22/broken-leaf-from-gorreana-tea/
A very pleasant tea.
This is one of the best everyday teas I have had, soft, gentle, delicious!
Backlogging from last week…see previous notes :)
Having a cup of this with my ginger honey crystals. My taste buds are coming back, because I can taste the tea beyond the strong flavor of ginger. Nice.
Back when my taste buds were working properly, I wrote this review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2011/06/22/broken-leaf-from-gorreana-tea/
Enjoying this one today – it is so pleasant. I just got finished writing my review for it, it should publish in a few days on the SororiTea Sisters blog. This is a great every day kind of tea, this is what every day tea should taste like (rather than that stuff in the yellow, red and white box).
This is very nice. It is smooth and mild in flavor, with a delicious sweetness. Slightly malty. I like!
This is tasty! I’m really enjoying the Gorreana offerings lately!
This is semi-malty yet smooth…a nice medium strength black! Good for mid mornings or afternoons! Sweeter ending :)
Brisk! Fresh & Clean! Crisp! Airy! JUICY for a black! I like it VERY MUCH!!!!
Grew up drinking Gorreana teas. My favorite and easy for me to get because my parents live on the island it is grown.
I grew up drinking this tea. My parents are from the island this is grown and I have seen the plantation many times. When little I would drink a big bowl of this with milk in it. So good. I compare all others to this tea.
My parents live on St Michaels in the Azores Islands where this tea is grown. Whenever I visit I go see this plantation. Love the green tea it is awesome quality.
