OMG! Dry…this smells like butt. Seriously. I’m not even joking.
Post infusion…it smells like a rare flower I can’t pick my finger on and the roots of trees…and maybe a bit of root beer.
It has a mellow flavor…almost lemon verbena esque and a bit of root beer flavor.
I have to admit it’s a bit harsh getting past the dry aroma but overall the taste isn’t bad for an herbally-herbal tisane.
(I’m now unplugging my nose – virtually)
With the second infusion, I steeped for six minutes. Still can’t bring myself to 15 minutes.
This infusion is also delicious, although it is a little different than the first infusion. I notice more of a fruit tone emerging with this infusion, as well as a stronger floral tone. The malt and cream notes are still there, although these seem softer this time. Still a rich, delicious cup of tea, and definitely worthwhile to steep this a second time.
Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea. This is a delightful Assam… very different from a typical (black) Assam. The suggested steeping parameters on Grey’s website state to steep for 15 minutes. I’m afraid I wasn’t quite that brave, I steeped it for only four minutes, and I was scared that would be too long for an Assam. I’ve had far too many bitter Assam teas after steeping even a second or two longer than three minutes that steeping this for four minutes – even though it is a white tea – was a bit scary to me.
As it turns out, this is fantastic. Sweet, creamy even! The malty tones that I’d expect from an Assam are there, but together with the creamy notes, it tastes absolutely decadent. No astringency or bitterness. Just sweet, sweet delicious tea.
The more teas from Kenya I am able to try the more I must say I am a flat-out FAN of Kenyan Teas! This one is no exception! This smells slightly bready – which I LOVE. The taste is certainly robust but also a bit sweet – and sour (but in a good way), and it smooths out in the end quite nicely. There is an afterthought of smoke in there, somewhere, too! A neat surprise! A solid black tea!
This isn’t smoked like a Lapsang Souchong but it’s a gentle smoke – like from a distance. It’s nice. The flavor is very good…sweet, oak-like, somewhat near a formosa oolong type oolong. I will agree this is a unique smoked aroma and flavor. I don’t think I have ever had a smoked tea be this memorable. YAY! A great offering!
This say perfect for the afternoon or evening but it was my THREE cups of the day and it’s awesome! I’m sending the rest to my Sororitea Sister LiberTEAs but the postman might have to pry it from my fingers! It’s delish!
It’s rich and malty and toasty-sweet and a wonderful Keemun. I’m totally loving Grey’s Teas thus far and this might be my favorite one so far!
It’s been a crazy few hours! WOW!
I received some teas from Grey’s and am super excited to try them!
This is my first one!
At first I thought it was a flavored Earl Grey. Then I thought it was some sort of Chai…an Earl Grey flavored Chai, perhaps? Regardless…the citrus is very nice. The cloves are just right and eventho it’s supposed to be a Winter WARMER this is FAB hot or cold.
