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.

I’m going to have a full length review at 6am EST tomorrow at Sororitea Sisters. This is one I am spending some time with today and really surprised me.

Heads-up:
perfumy
slightly chewy for a green…interesting.
slightly vegetal, slightly herbal

YUM!

QuiltGuppy

I’m curious… What do you mean by chewy?

The Purrfect Cup

I was wondering that too!

There is a light orange hint to it or it could just be messing with my mind! Regardless I do like this one! :)

It’s semi-bold, semi-mouth-watering, and airy. Slightly bitter but in a good way…or maybe astringent would be a better word, but, regardless it’s tasty and different than I expected!

Familiarity breeds contempt or something – I seriously have not been giving this its dues, though I suspect being familiar with this as being the kind of “normal” tea makes me rate a lot of garden-variety black teas as being unsatisfactory.

This on the other hand is just right black tea. Smooth full bodied but not too much, organic, average priced, just right

Preparation

I find I always down play the simple teas until I have a cup and think to myself “MMMM, why havne’t I been drinking more of this??”

oof, you can tell i’ve just come out of holidays. i read your first line as: ‘family breeds contempt’. lololololol.

cteresa

My spelling particularly in English is not awesome. That was not totally unlikely a spelling, James!

Tuscanteal, yeah I got a few like those, so nice to came back to them….

I had some of this tea when I was in Laguna Beach. What a fresh tasting tea. I loved the taste. I enjoyed the website as well, it was neat to see this rare tea plantation. Id love to visit it sometime. they have pictures of the environment on their site, worth checking out.
