Recent Tasting Notes

MissB’s box of incredible tea is still a complete delight and supply of all things awesome (Thank you!!!)…. I picked this out of it this morning.
I’m feeling like I don’t have time to write in depth tasting notes, and that’s bugging me…but I told myself that I need to at least just jot down and log what I’m drinking, even if I can’t really get into it at that moment…
anyway…
This tea was exactly as it’s name proclaims… just a lovely classic black. It was bold and round, but not overpowering. I steeped this one 4 times and had a tasty cup each time…The 1st was dark and strong (but NOT in a bad way at all…perfectly fantastic!); by the fourth, the liquor was lighter (but still so pretty!) and had lost any bit of astringency, becoming sweet with a touch of roastiness.
really great tea!

thanks for sending this one my way MissB this is a good solid HELLO MORNING tea :) There’s a deep feeling to this one and it’s not a thin brew at all. It’s bold and hearty without being too much, if that makes sense. there’s a taste at the end of the sip that is different from many of the other teas i’ve had as well, which makes for a pleasant and interesting cup of tea :)

I like this one more today than I did last time – likely because I brewed it for longer. Smooth, light and refreshing, this is mostly spices with some black tea added in.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Sugar

Preparation
2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I have to wonder if I brewed this incorrectly. It’s thin and heavy on high-grade cinnamon (which is lovely, I must admit) however this is more of a cinnamon tea than a chai at this point. I only gave it two minutes though, so perhaps steeping it a bit longer and like a proper chai (in milk, I mean) might bring out more of the other flavors. Yay for tea from New Zealand!

Flavors: Cinnamon, Honey

Smells faintly of cocoa-heavy chocolate out of the bag, and tastes faintly of it too, although more so when it’s hot. It’s a hearty straight tea, with a hint of thickness to it that makes it satisfying. While not blow-my-mind amazing, this is still a pretty solid tea and one that I’m happy I grabbed from this New Zealand company.

Just tried Pure Green Organic, very smooth & refreshing green tea and best if all, there is absolutely no bitter after taste. I could enjoy a good cuppa of this anytime.

Well well well finally a green tea that is truly beautiful, I have been on the hunt for a good green tea for awhile now in New Zealand and now I can say with out a doubt I have found it.

The Blokes at Informal Tea really know there stuff, they not about just getting any odd tea in and selling it on, they about getting the most quality of tea in and giving it to the customer at a fair price.

Once you try Informal’s Pure Green I can honestly say you wont need to try any others, pure green is so smooth and will make you feel like you are in china.

Thank you Informal Tea New Zealand now has a proper tea company, keep up the good work.
