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!

At 15 minutes it does get more earthy but also sweet and floral. I think I would prefer it somewhere in the middle, actually. But I do like how different it is with the different lengths…it’s like a completely different tea! Very Versatile!

Malty-Sweet-and-Creamy! This is FAB!

BUT…I didn’t steep long enough…Oops! It say 15 minutes! I will try that. I usually infuse for about 3 minutes for a white and that is what I did here. It’s mellow but tasty as well as malty, sweet, and creamy! 2nd infusion per directions…stay tuned…

15 minutes??

I am also doing the O.o at 15 minutes. I have never heard of a steep time that long! But I’m still very much a tea newbie :)

15 min does seem extreme. I personally will never steep a white tea more than 5 minutes. I will await your reviw. :))

Yeah…I wouldn’t do this one at 15 minutes again. 5 is great 7 would be ok even

This is very interesting and I really like it! It’s beautiful and somewhat juicy like formosa oolong but it’s darker and sturdy like lapsang souchong. This is a nice combo of opposites. Pine, wood, smoky, slightly juicy. What a neat offering!

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 is down right amazing!

This is a wonderful Orange Blossom Oolong!

The blossom/floral ratio to the oolong is super and the Orange is incredibly juicy and true!

I LOVE THIS. Pure delight!

Smoky AND Malty! It’s reminiscent of burnt toast…some might think that I like that taste but I do. This is dandy! If you are looking for a smoky tea that isn’t specifically a Lapsang Souchong – try this one! It’s very nice!

This is amazing!

One of the better or best Darjeelings I have tried. It’s fresh, a little malty, a little floral but a sweeter floral and a bit bakey! Great!

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!

WOW! This is nice! It’s incredible! Malty, sort of creamy with a hint of sweet towards the end of the sip. It’s rich! This is a MARV Keemun. As an afterthought on the aftertaste I can pick up on either a pepper or a smoke but a tee-knee weenie hint!

Great!

drank Winter Warmer by Grey's Teas
6770 tasting notes

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.

By the looks of it, it took me about a year to get through this 125g. All year, it’s been my most comforting tea, for times when I need my favourite tea because something had better cheer me up soon! Maybe i should get some new first flush darjeeling, I do love it!

Had a wonderful evening and now sitting back in my room listening to Zero 7 and drinking this. This is my little heaven

I’m more and more convinced this needs to be brewed at a lower temperature. I didn’t measure it but I let the water in the kettle cool a bi before brewing and it let all the lovely sweet flavours out!

The most expensive tea I’ve ever bought and I think it’s probably the nicest too. It’s certainly very good anyway. I didn’t put in properly boiling water and it took off the edge to it but it still tastes sweet and good!!

it’s nice without milk but I have 500g+ of black tea I can’t have with milk and I’m the only person who drinks them, so sadly I won’t be buying any more for a year or so

It’s just too light. After a couple of attempts at it, I put in four teaspoons for a 2-3 cup pot and it still wasn’t strong. I know the description warns that it has some lightness, but you can hardly add milk to it and still taste the tea. Not what I was looking for

Much gentler than Earl grey it’s the same idea. I find it pleasently soothing wheras Earl Grey is a bit strong most of the time.

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Been a while since I’ve had this but remember it as a very fine oolong. Delicate but complex.
