Nice flavor to this Ceylon. A very pleasant sweetness to it. It is smooth yet rustic. Somewhat astringent toward the finish… accompanied by a citrus-like tangy taste that seems to just “go with” the astringency. Some floral tones in the background. A very nice Ceylon, this is right along the lines of what I think of when I think of a Ceylon. A very mild, pleasant black tea – strong, not bitter, just a very nice cuppa.
One of my favorite Darjeelings to date! Today this is airy and slightly sweet bright and crisp. See previous notes…
I thought I already logged this but didn’t and I am backlogging now…so I will have to sip it again for a full review but I liked this very much! Nice black tea for mid morning!
A bit on the lighter side of things today but still tasty.
I’m declaring today SIPDOWN DAY!
Who’s with me!?
See how many teas from your stash you can SIP DOWN and empty from your stash!
SIPDOWN #1 for today
This one isn’t on the website, I don’t know if it has already sold out or not. I will have to drop KTeas a line and find out.
This is an incredibly strong Assam: bold, malty and a considerable amount of astringency at the finish. The aftertaste is especially nice: I can still taste the malt and it brings forth a pleasant caramel-y sweetness. A good, strong Assam!
Smells and tastes sweeter. This is nice hot and cold…had a cup of each today :)
Deliciously bold, hints of malt, caramel-y undertones. It has some real gusto. I love a good Nilgiri and this one is as good as any that I have tried (at least recently that I can remember). I love that it’s organic too.
I enjoyed a cup of this this morning and it’s still on the mellower side. I wouldn’t suggest a 2nd infusion, however, as I found it to be a tad funky.
The first black tea I eyeballed this morning. Don’t really feel like functioning yet but I must…I need a day off…sigh…have to wait another month…Grrrr!
Wow! This is really quite different from the other Morawaka estate Ceylon teas that I’ve tried (those being broken leaf, this is whole leaf). This is lighter and crisper in taste, while the others were actually quite a bit stronger and bolder. This tastes very clean and very much what I’d expect from a Ceylon, only fresher in taste. Very uplifting and makes a nice afternoon cuppa.
The sweetness here is more like honey than burnt-sugar or caramel.
Yummy, and goes great with shortbread cookies too!
This one certainly didn’t last long :)
This is incredibly malty and rich. The first infusion was slightly astringent but still tasty for those who enjoy a strong black tea! The 2nd infusion was also nice. Still malty but not astringent…and still strong! YAY!
This is so good. Beautifully floral and sweet. It is similar (somewhat) to a Bai Mu Dan, but, it has a heartier flavor. This would be an excellent white tea for those who find a typical white tea to be too delicate for their palate.
So far my favorite of the Hawaiian Grown teas that KTeas offers.
backlogging and mighty fine :)
I just got finished writing a review of this tea for the SororiTea Sisters blog (which will publish next week). I gotta tell you how impressed I am with this teabag. I am not one to normally GUSH over a teabag … but this one is an exception. This tea was harvested in February of this year, and processed into teabag form immediately. This has got to be the freshest tea in a teabag I’ve ever had the opportunity to drink!
It is a great Ceylon, too. Bold … much bolder than most Ceylon teas I’ve encountered, with a malty undertone. There is some astringency, and I recommend steeping at just 2 1/2 minutes to keep the astringency under control. My first cup at 3 1/2 minutes was a little too astringent for my liking, but, at just 2 1/2 minutes, this cup that sits before me is just perfect. Bright flavor with a sweet note that develops as I sip.
If you’re looking for a fresh alternative to the teabag for the times when you need that teabag convenience … you really should try this. I think you’ll be surprised at just how much freshness and flavor these teabags hold!
Upping my rating on this! D-Lish! I picked up on slightly crusty/bready notes trying to hide underneath today…sneaky lil buggers~GOTTA love ’em!
Very Fresh and smooth! Milder but nice!
This has that typical Darjeeling taste with a floral and woodsy finish. I like the smooth intro to it tho! That was a little unexpected.
A mellower black tea – tasty but on the lighter side. very slight floral notes. Was ‘good for’ 2 infusions.
A little on the lighter side…
Another LiberTEAs surprise! Thanks Girlie!
This is a medium strength black tea that has a hint of citrus to it – naturally! There are also slight hints of a creamy-sugary taste to it much like caramel. It’s a very even taste – somewhat velvety – from start to finish! This is a nice relaxing, comforTEA!
I LOVE THIS!
Plain and simple! I LOVE IT!
This is gentle and smooth. A very lightly colored brown liquor post infusion.
I really like this. Probably one of my FAVE Darjeelings to date! Very fresh, VERY Springy!!!! No astringency at all! Not earthy…just clean and springy!
Thanks for this one LiberTEAs!
This is a more masculine type black tea with a little bitterness to it. It’s hearty and bold. It’s pretty in-your-face but in a good way! A really wonderful morning tea! There are caramel notes that carry you on into the aftertaste which are nice, too! YAY!
This is a great Ceylon. My first cup of this, I used a little too much leaf, I think. It was still very good – in fact, I think I prefer the first cup to this second cup! It was robust and even a little malty. In fact, I might have mistaken it for an Assam!
This second cup, I used the correct amount of leaf, and it is lighter and crisper. It doesn’t have that same robust, malty flavor of the first cup, but both were very nice, and I like that this tea offers you some versatility (although I’m not sure it meant to!)
I’ve been wanting to notch off this A-MURR-ican-grown white tea for some time. Luckily, it’s now available for purchase – both at Tea Hawaii and at KTeas. I received this one-off sample amidst a bulk of others, and I’m rather surprised it took me a month to finally get to it. This is a very burly and full-bodied white tea with a complex character. Flavors it evokes range from tropical fruit to volcanic earthiness…as well as the flutteriness of a good Bai Mu Dan. Like all Hawaiian teas I’ve tried, it’s in a league of its own. Not sure for which sport, though.
