There is an interesting mix of malt and smoke in this tea. Unlike the Classic Black blend, I was able to drink this. The smoke is mild which allows for the malt notes to be noticeable. The mixture is a bit odd, but it is smooth. Chocolate and smoke may not be a mixture that works well… but I will test that :P
Got this as a sample when I bought a huge box full of these New Zealander teas, and I wish I’d tried it when I got it! Smelled like rich, unsweetened chocolate out of the bag. Tastes more like a piece of chocolate that fell into the BBQ charcoal, minus the smokiness. A bit malty, too? Super complex straight tea that I’m curious about resteeping.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Malt
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…
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 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.
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.
